  • It is just a few blocks down the road but if my husband has his way we will be moving 40 miles out into the country so HE will have a 40 mile drive because my son is not going to be on the bus for 90 minutes each way just to go to school

  • I don't.  They take the bus.  The bus stops down the street from our house.  The school is about 2 miles away.


    Their old school (before we moved) was 3 1/2 blocks away.  They walked.  The first year I walked them all the way.  The 2nd year I walked them half way most of the time.  Last year I stopped walking them all together and they would walk themselves to school each morning (they were in 1st, 2nd and 4th grades last year).

  • The distance is about 3miles. 7 min tops to get him to school. He will not ride the bus for 60 minutes/day because I can take him and pick him up and be back home with 14min/day.

  • I drive my son less than a mile to his charter high school. To take the bus, he would have to take a bus to a different high school that is about 4 miles away, get on a bus and drive back to his charter high school. Way easier for me to take him myself.
