My kids are still only 5 and 4, in the fall my eldest will be in 1st grade and my youngest in pre-school. They'll be at an excellent elementary school but the middle school isn't so great. I wasn't happy with their performance as educators when I was student there or when my younger siblings went there. The public highschool is a little better but also at the highschool level there are two other schools I have the option of choosing to send my kids so I was thinking about homeschooling for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. What do you think?

Things can change at any given school in that amount of time. I would wait until your kids are older, and then check out the school before deciding.
Having taught middle school, I do have to say the transition is difficult. I do think high school will be quite a shock for students that never attended middle school. I'm not saying it's not the best choice, but your kids will have to get used to high school being very different from elementary.
