OH! Hard question! We are in preschool right now and researching our options. Currently he is in a private Montessori setting that is from age one until the end of ninth grade. I LOVE his school. Small, comfortable, and a wonderful philosophy on learning that works well for my child. It fits her personality. It does not fit our budget. So....we have hard choices. We may do one more year of this private school he has been in since he was one. I love the Montessori method and our local public school we are zoned for has a Montessori program. It is a good option but there are differences. One is the ratio of students to teachers. At our small private school it is 17 kids, a very large classroom, and three certified teachers in the room. In the public version it is two teachers to 23 kids. Yikes. But that is about the right ratio in public school. I love the diversity in the public school. There are trade offs and benefits

to both. Limitations to both. Hard. I can also look at all the public schools in our area and pay out of district fees. We have interesting options: Montessori, International Baccalaureate, traditional settings, and a Charter school. Or continue with our private setting. Perhpas looking at home schooling. But home schooling, the way we would set it up, is more expensive than private. I like having my options and am so lucky we do have the abilities to have those options available. There is now wrong answer...it is about finding the best fit for my child. My heart breaks for parents who have more limited choices or no choices at all. I am a little nervous about what we decide. My guess is we will try the public Montessori for financial reasons and knowing he can always go back to private school if that is in his best interest.
