  • It's about 3 miles to the HS so I drove my daughter when she went.

  • We are 1.5 from school, but I drive them. It isn't safe for them to take their bikes because the school doesn't have enough bike rakes and theft runs rampant.

  • It's a very short walk to the schools here...2 blocks to the high school and 2 blocks to the elem. school in the other directions. My older 2 walked to school until they had friends who drove and picked them up and my younger 2 walked until their Junior year when they started driving & then they would pick up friends and drive to school (some lived in the city a few miles away).

  • My husband drives our daughter to high school, it is 11 miles to the school and our high school buses have major issues. My son also gets taken to middle school as it is 14 miles away.

  • They don't. And never will... That's what the bus is for! It's 6 miles to the highschool, and if they don't want to take the bus I'm sure they will have friends that drive or they will by that time.

  • The boys walk about a half mile to the school. Our town is like a mile wide by a mile long...so nothing is that far away.

  • Mine don't walk to school. We live in a different school district than the one they attend so I drive them. Which is okay because I work for the school district that they attend.
