    You are a weird kid. Just leave me alone. Not sure what you're doing here with a bunch of 30+ yo dudes. Carry on. Leave me out of your comments. Thanks.

    You're probably crossed off the list as soon as you ask this question? I kid.

    Some people just choose private school over public school. Welcome to Earth.

    We started a 529 for junior. If the kid gets a scholarship, he gets that money to spend. That there, is a carrot.

    I don't think that is the case, if the child gets a scholarship.

    I told Darko I'd be open to doing public grade school & high school & trying to do private middle school. Simply because I've heard really not good things about Webster middle school.

    That seems crazy to me. Like it would never actually happen

    According to a bunch of parents on the community connect & a teacher I know at Webster, apparently the middle school's teachers aren't doing much to prepare the students for high school & the students are behind when starting. Obviously their complaints & reasons were much more detailed, but that's the gist.

    Why? People join high school from all kinds of different former schools.

    I think it would be harder (not impossible) to go to a high school not knowing anyone.

    A lot of private high schools are only 7-12 or 9-12 ...

    This sounds really wrong.

    I'm simple minded. I think of catholic when I think private. I'm not thinking of rich AF junior prep

    Especially if it's a public high school that is filled by a public middle school.

    You're going to send your kid to a school, let them make friends, then send them to another school at the most awkward stage of their life, make all new friends, and then say "just kidding!" Back to original friends!

    Not saying you couldn't, just saying it seems unlikely.

    Yes. That's what I was saying.

    Why send to public to 8th then private for hs. Or vice versa.
