Next year my DD will be starting 1st grade. I've already decided that when middle school comes, she will go to a private school. The problem I'm facing now is what do I do with her from 1st to 5th grade? The elementary public school in our area is wonderful! Small classes and great teachers. It was suggested by my dad that we start her in private school next year so she can grow with the kids. It might be hard being the new kid in middle school even if the school is pretty small.
So I need opinions! What's your take on public vs private schools?
