re: Small towns south of Lafayette - tiger91
You graduated prior to my first son. And admin has drastically changed and trig has always been offered as apart of advanced math. Calc and physics are offered AND they have a rotating eighth hour so they'll graduate with 32 credits and a variety of classes to make them well rounded students. ...

Erath schools ARE top notch. We don't live in the area but I can tell you VC does not suck by any stretch. There are several black kids ... And Asians as well. I'm not saying that their education is ANY BETTER than Erath but to call it sucky is wrong. ...

[quote] They will nickle and dime you to death all in the name of God.[/quote] I guess we're fortunate. After tuition/fees (that was all included in the $12K last year for 2 kids), there are fund raisers but there is nothing REQUIRED about them. There are incentives for selling raffle books but...

Yeah I just looked at their website; in laws are paying nearly $16K for 3 kids. I paid nearly $12K last year for 2 in Catholic high school south of Lafayette. I don't have the luxury here of having good options....

I have a brother in law whose 3 kids go there ... maybe 3, 5 and 7 grade? Been there since K and they seem pleased. No clue what their alternative was though. For 3 it's definitely pricey....
