Do you plan on homeschooling through high school?

I've heard several people say they plan on homeschooling the elementary years, maybe middle school, but then sending the kids to school for high. What are your plans (if all goes well!)?

I plan to homeschool through high school, because the influences in the higher grades are much worse. But I sometimes fantasize about having the house alone (and clean)!

All the way through. The only reason I wouldn't is if my child was unhappy with homeschooling and it was affecting his or her behavior.

My personal opinion is that if ever there was a time I'd feel comfortable with public school education it would be in elementary school.  Has nobody else noticed that the quality tapers off as the kids get to higher levels? LOL.  The plan for now is all the way through HS but we're taking things a year at a time right now.

Exactly. I remember middle school and high school. There are things I have seen and been through I never want my girls to have to deal with, especially at such tender ages.

I'm not sure. I want to but then I worry about them missing certain things and me not being able to provide a good education. Then I think we'll be okay and I can buy/hire tutors/ etc for those hard classes.
