My dd is starting kindergarten next year. i got the acceptance letter last week for her that she got in to a language immersion school. im estatic, i think this is a wonderful opportunity for her. The only problem is that she would go to a different school than her brother (who will be going into second grade) the schools are about 5min apart from each other but in different school districts. I cannot transfer my son into this school because of they way they work i would have to have him completely bilingual by the end of the summer. So..... would you do it?

Why not? If it doesn't stress you out to go to PTA meetings and such at two different schools and the immersion is really important, then you should go for it! Your daughter will thank you for it later.

I don't see the big deal. I'd rather my kids go to the same school but there are reasons, like this, to send your kids to separate schools.

Yes, I'd do it.  Lots of kids are in different schools when they get older anyway.  Like one in high school, one in middle school, one in elementary..

Sure. My sister and I were always in different school districts. It isn't much different from having one in elementary school & the other in middle school.

DS goes to a different school than DD and my other DS because he is autistic and needs an ABA 1:1 program which is not offered at their school. They bus him and it doesn't matter to me. I want DS to be in a class to suit his needs.

What's the problem? So what if they go to different schools

I see nothing wrong with it, but I am curious as to why DS was never applied for this school, was it not an option at the time? Not bashing or judging just curious.

 Yeah, I think it'll be great for your DD.   It's not a huge deal that they're at different schools.
