We switched schools this year - from private to public. Sorry to say but I've been greatly disappointed in our experience. The school seems to have lower expectations of its students which is reflected in the teaching. If your child is not run of the mill average, then this is not the place for you. The school has a hard time providing challenging curriculum for students who have the ability to do more and learn at a faster pace. This is not to say that the school doesn't try. They are willing to work with parents but be ready to bring your own ideas and curriculum to the school that the teacher can use when your child finishes up the regular work. If you suspect your child may have problems learning, they discourage testing to confirm whether or not this is true until the 2nd or 3rd grade typically - when they really see how far behind the child may fall. Nevermind any early intervention unless it is obviously severe.
