re: Do your kids go to private school?
We’re in the far suburbs of Austin, where the public schools are great, but we have our kid in a charter school, as it teaches a classical education and has ties to Christianity, but is not a full-on religious school. Also has a uniform, which a lifesaver when you have a 10-year old daughter.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
Do I remember correctly? Weren’t our kids born like a week apart? Around the LSU Washington game in Seattle?

I remember not being able to go because of that

Yellowfin, how would you rate the private schools in Lafayette? Have 2 young boys that would be starting in a few years.

The options are...

Fatima
St. Pius
St. Genevieve
John Paul the Great

re: Do your kids go to private school?
St Pius/Fatima/Cathedral are all 3 pretty close, visit each one and decide where you fit. Cost are about the same. Pius a touch ahead academically but lack of focus on athletics

ascension and esa are probably a little better academically but double the price

St Gen is cheaper and a little behind but if you want Teurlings they are a feeder school

I live in Williamson County TN. So, public schools


My oldest son started in Williamson County. Excellent school system. We loved his elementary school.

My kids go to public school in Florida now. We live in the country and the school is K-12. We really like it. Florida has school choice. So, you aren’t tied to the district you live in.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
This is what I don't understand. There are the really good private schools then there are the smaller private schools where parents send their kids to public school, for whatever reason.. Unless you are sending your kid to one of the really good private schools, chances are.. The public school your kid would go to if you didn't send them to a private school, probably has more resources than the small private school.

If all those parents would send their kids to the public school, the public school would benefit by having some parents that are involved.

How many of you, who send your kids to a private school (that's not a really good private school) feel like your kid is truly getting a better education?

I have 3 kids I sent to Catholic school.

One has graduated. One is a Sr and one in 6th grade.

Best money I ever spent.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
once again you make very little sense Oweo. with that said, I went through catholic school,St.Gerard and Redemptorist jr. high and high school. When I lived in Baton Rouge, I had both of my kids at St. Aloysius. I moved to watson and enrolled the kids in public school. Live oak middle and live oak high were really good schools back then. I moved to Lafourche Parish in 2007 and both of my kids finished up in public school here. Son graduated from South Lafourche High school and Nichols state, and daughter went to LSMSA for her sophomore through senior year and graduated from LSMSA with 57 hours of college credit. However, she decided to go to LSU and they only took like 30 hours. But she now has two master's degrees from LSU and will be starting on her doctorate soon. Son is working at a local lumber supply store and is the contractor sales manager.

Schools are what you make of them unless it is a truly shitty school. Most public schools are rougher than private but if a student is motivated he/she/it can get a good education pretty much anywhere if they want it.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
Live in Texas , public schools are good, if I ever got nervous , I’ll send them to Parochial School, but I hope they do fine at public school . Parochial School at $9k plus my property tax , eh tough ticket to sign.

Move to Sulphur. Cities in the 20k plus population range tend to segregate students based on academic acumen. The smart kids take calculus in HS. Other kids learn how to weld. A lot are in between.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
I too live in the Lake Charles area and yes we send our kids to private school. You should definitely look around as your pricing is way off. Ours are 12,10,7 and runs about $4000 a child.

re: Do your kids go to private school?
Mine are in daycare but I’m in Nola so of course they will go to Catholic school (Newman and Country Day private are a little out of our price range)
The bottomline of this thread is public school is perfectly fine if you live in an affluent area/school district. If not, it’s much more of a gamble.
