My DD is 5. I have been home schooling her and recently had her tested. She is working at a 1st grade level in reading/language arts and second grade level in math. She has been thriving in a home school environment. She does well academically and is very socially active. I would LOVE to be able to continue home schooling her.
However, her bio father, whom I am divorced from, is now taking me to court to bar me from home schooling. Our DD and I are BOTH very upset by this. Our DD LOVES being home schooled. She is very happy.
I positively refuse to send her to the crappy public schools in the area. I am aware that not ALL public schools are awful. The ones in THIS area are though, and I will not send her to public school here.
I intend to fight this and attempt to be allowed to home school her. I have already retained an attorney. But I am aware that home schooling is generally frowned upon. So I am prepared to be told that I can not continue her education at home. I am now looking at private elementary schools. I will have to work in order to pay her tuition because her father will not agree to pay half I am sure. I am not thrilled about this. But her education is important and I will do whatever is necessary to make sure she succeeds.
Has anyone used a Montessori elementary school?
