When I met my dh I had 3 in school and I did not want to move my kids from this town we live in. He has a place out in the middle of nowhere that he was living in when we met. When we got married he moved to my place and we had a baby.
in those 7 yrs. His daughter had his housed trashed it to the point we need to gut it out and redo the house.
dh has a goal in mind to move to this house, which is fine because my son would be close to cousins and here there's nobody his age.
our current town is building a new school, 7 miles away.... the place in the country has a school 23 miles down the road and here is how my sons day would be.
1 hour and 20 minute ride to school on the bus
unload high school kids in one building, then little kids move on to their school
there is no lunch room in the little kids school..lunch is brought in and the kids eat on the gym stage and then run around the gym when they are done.
after school back on the bus for an hour and 20 minutes.
what is better top of the line brand new school, live in town but no kids to play with after school?
or yucky old school, long bus rides, living in the country, cousins live up the road and can play everyday?

It isn't the facilities, it is the quality of the staff. If there are great teachers and adequate teaching materials, then eating on the gym floor and a longer bus ride are no biggie.
