Okay, so let’s finally get to why I personally put my kids in a private school.
First, my husband works at a private Christian school, so we get a discount. We would not be able to afford private school otherwise.
So since we had the option of a private school, we had to weigh our options. In the end, we decided to try private school because:
1. Strong academics
2. Christian environment/religious education (We are particularly happy that this school is an inter-denominational school since we are Orthodox! No denomination-specific dogma is taught, although there is a general Protestant influence. We feel like we can handle that.)
3. More Opportunities (more field trips, overnight trips, elementary clubs and sports)
What kind of school do your children go to? What do you like about it?
