My dd has been making noises about wanting to go to high school next year.
She wants the high school experience, complete with prom and gossiping in the halls. I want her to have a quality, tailor made education. So we came to a compromise.
She can go to prom with her friends (all of her friends are in public school) and sigh...she can go this church that I banned her from last year*. I didn't like it because the kids there are disrespectful and the adults don't supervise as much as they should. Basically it's like public school with religion,lol. But many of her friends attend and they do have a lot of fun trips planned throughout the year.
She was ecstatic and promised she wouldn't bother about going to high school anymore.
*The church isn't my first choice but we don't have a lot of options. I have no car and there are no HS groups near by.
