Moms with secondary school students.

I have a question for all moms with kids in highschool,grade 7 to 11 or 12 as the case may be. Do you pay school fees for your kids and if you don't mind telling me how much you pay and where you live. I appreciate your info, as I pay what I concider a steep price for grade 7 (highschool in Montreal Canada). Thank you.

  • We live in Ontario and pay about $650 per year.  

    When did they start wearing uniforms?  I went to school in Mtl and never had to wear a uniform (mind you that was years ago lol).  Consider yourself lucky, here the kids need to do 40 hours of community service or they can't graduate.

  • my kids go to public school and i never knew you had to pay any fees unless they were in private school, and even then, i thought it was just the anual tuition

  • Do your kids wear a school uniform? in our city all english high schools wear a school uniform, and get suspended if they don't wear it. My kids are in public school. I wouldn't be able to afford the 1100$ fees for a private school here.

  • Here we don't pay any fees - we buy school supplies (pens, paper, lock for locker, etc), but no "fees." What are they for?
