Pick your child(ren)'s school? Did you have a big amount of choices or just a few? Public, private, or homeschool? If you had a lot to choose from, how did you pick the perfect one?

We went with the one 3 blocks from our home.  Very convenient.  I also liked that it was at a church, and the price was very reasonable.  We live in a major city.  We could have gone anywhere.

My son isn't in school yet but he will be home schooled. We chose that because public school doesnlt teach about God.

My son is only 3, so no school yet. IF he is in public school then he will go to the one that we are in the district of. But I am hoping that I can get enough money to send him to the school at my church. If not I'll probably homeschool. Possibly let him go to public school (if I can't do private) for the first couple years.

Connor will be homeschooled.  The public school in our area is slowly falling apart due to budget cuts and poor administration.  There are only 2 private schools in our area, and they are both heavily religious, we don't want that.

 While erin is only just now 23 months old she is already on a waiting list for a local Charter School.  I first looked at bare stats and with that KNEW we wouldn't be going public .  Then to narrow down to which charter school I read all there materials and decided which program offered my child what most I wanted her to get besides just a great academic experience.  parental involvement is required every month....uniforms are worn.....sports are played....band and art are taught.  lots of varied after school activities and very high standards set for the children.  It felt right after touring and speaking to other parents whose children have been in the school for years.

 BTW even with her being on the waiting list already chances are she won't get in before kindergarten.  so when we where looking for our home we only looked in the area of town that had the highest rated public elementary school so chances are she won't be as far behind as she could be when her name comes up finally on the list.  Wow can't believe how lucky some of you are that you can wait until the last minute.
