Do your kids go to private or public school?

For those whose kids go to private school...how expensive is it? I'm thinking of putting my kids in private school and want to know how much it really is.

Depends on the school and where you live. My oldest stays with her dad for the school year and goes to public school. DS attended pre-k in public but the school district is awful. To get him to have the same level of education my oldest receives we had no choice but to send him to private next year. It's $2400 per year.

depends on where you live; check out local private schools, and make appointments to talk about it.

btw, where I live private non-religious schools are about $1500/mo, and religious ones are about $2000/mo for upper grades (middle thru high school)

Private... tuition varies GREATLY based on the individual school. My youngest is at a small Christian school, not affiliated with our church, and his tuition for pre-K this year was $4500. My older guy is finishing kindergarten at a Montessori school, tuition for the year was just shy of $6000 and included lunch. Next year they will both be going to a preparatory day school affiliated with a major state university, and their tuition *would be* $28,500 each but we get a massive discount because I teach at the university. I believe in private school education, but no way could we afford $57,000 a year for 12 years.

Charter

We get the benefits of private with none of the cost. Small teacher/student ratio, the classes are taught how we want them to be (this seems to be the charter capital or something so they compete heavily here), good food, caring staff, input in education. Best part is its free.
