re: Do your kids go to private school?
No. When we moved to Louisiana, I researched the best public school districts and bought a house in Ascension.

Some locals tend to have a fear regarding public schools not being good enough to prepare students for college. While some districts certainly fail to prepare their kids, other districts are quite good.

My oldest son is in college and maintaining a 3.2GPA in CyberEngineering (EE with a Math minor). He is well on his way to a lucrative career in cybersecurity.

My other child is still in HS and participates in numerous clubs that are not typically offered at smaller private schools.

I do pay 8K a year in property taxes which partially goes towards the schools though.


No state income tax though.

The elementary seems fine although it went from a 'B' grade to 'C' last year.


Dang which school is that? Lake Charles has at least two other elementary schools that are A rated.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
I simply wouldn't live where I have to send mine to private school. I went to a private school.

This^. Unfortunately, those areas are getting more and more difficult to find. I pay a large tax bill every year, and in exchange for my money, I’m due some things in return. Safe, successful schools is one of those things. I have one in kindergarten, another that’ll be in kindergarten in 2 years, both in, or will be in, public school. I have a 15 yo in private school in Tangipahoa($10k’ish) but there’s no way in hell I’d send her to public out there.

No

We use the magnet schools and have gone from loving them to not so much.

Yes and at 23k a kid it’s ridiculous and if you think the private schools are better than public schools think again because the transgendered kids are all showing up at private schools these days not public schools.

Nope, after having our first kid we researched area school districts within driving distance of our jobs. Very happy with the public schools where we are at in Arkansas.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
My oldest just started pre-k at a private school where my wife works in Memphis. We have a great public elementary school where we live in Collierville, but we get half price at the private school and our boys can go to school with my wife. I'm also not a fan of the size of Collierville High, I was for building a second high school instead of a new bigger school, Collierville ha gotten too big for only one public high school

re: Do your kids go to private school?
My son went to John Curtis from K-8. The I decided to take him out of Curtis and put him in New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy for 9-12. He's in his junior year and his grades are up, has a great attitude and he has that drive now. Best decision I have ever made with him. And it's a public school.

You don't pay enough in property taxes to be "due" anything as far as a school is concerned. It's small compared to what you pay for a good private school.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
South Lafayette Parish

Private School 3rd Grader

We appreciate and value the family atmosphere and the parental involvement at private schools. We also want our daughter brought up with a Catholic background, so it was a no brainer. Even South LA public school systems are becoming inundated with the liberal PC bull shite.

With Private school she will attend 1 school Prek-8 and 1 school for highschool. In Public it would have been 3 schools minimum and the way Lafayette parish is always rezoning who knows what will happen.

Extra Bonus: no need to have play dates with hoodlums and heathens

Yep...he goes to St George's in NOLA. 1st grade. We just didn't have any other choice. Of course his mom went down the list and picked the most expensive elementary school she could find.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
We're in your general area of the state and yes, both of mine go to private school and have since they were in pre-K. It's a financial sacrifice, but it's completely worth it in my opinion. My oldest is a sophomore and youngest is in 8th. The next 4 years will be some tight budgets with cars etc. We tried public school as a freshman last year but it just didn't work out. The attitudes of the administration and teachers is just so completely different.

No. My kids will go to the great Southlake ISD. This is one of the primary reasons we live in the suburbs as opposed to Dallas proper.

This is wrong. Are you saying there are no trans in public schools?
