Q:

Private school, public school, home school...?

I'm trying to decide what's right for my son. I know there are so many contributing factors, but I'd love to hear anyone's arguments for any situation! Thanks!

There are definitely pros and cons to both sides.  I would suggest checking out some of these sites to find both sides of the argument as well as a private school directory:

Private schools are more better than Public school since they take care very well.

Hi,

I work with The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS for short), a non-profit with more than 300 member schools in both North America and abroad. I read your post about choosing a school and thought you might be interested in checking out TABS at www.boardingschools.com.

BoardingSchools.com – the official online guide to boarding schools – has tons of information, including:

• Lots of useful features and videos about the boarding school experience. (http://www.boardingschools.com/home.aspx)

• A School Browser that lets you search nearly 300 schools across North America. (http://www.boardingschools.com/find-a-school.aspx)

• A great “How to Apply” guide that takes you through the process step by step. (http://www.boardingschools.com/how-to-apply.aspx)

• A general application form accepted by many leading boarding schools. (http://www.boardingschools.com/how-to-apply/application.aspx)

• A Guided Search function that narrows your criteria to target specific courses, arts and athletic interests.

Best,
Amy

I think it is best if you enroll your child in a Online School. Shy students are able to ask questions because they can ask them online without facing the instructor. The Internet makes it possible for the student to ask questions and receive the answer back almost immediately.

Small is often better - a great deal depends on the kind of public school that your public school is. There are very large and overburdened public schools and there are small and community-focused public schools. If your public school is one you're comfortable with it's also free.

And private school almost never is and usually is quite expensive. For many people private school is simply out of the question. If you can afford it, private schools can certainly offer a very different experience from public school.

Homeschooling is something else again and difficult to compare to either private or public school. Parents who homeschool have very strong feelings about school and often take on a tremendous daily commitment to their child's education. Homeschooling is also not something that every family can afford in that one parent really has to be at home every day and they're not bringing in any income.

What are you looking for is one question to ask yourself when considering schooling for your child? A friendly environment? A structured environment? A diverse group of friends? An innovative curriculum? A traditional curriculum?
