New School

This school year, we have 3 kids in one charter school and one still in public school.  Only because the charter school has a waiting list.  Hopefully our son will get in this month.  If not,  he will have to wait until next year.

We made the decision to pull them out of our local public school, because our kids were coming home from school complaining about other older kids displaying immoral, vulgar language and bullying behaviors at school during recess.  It's been a relief to have them at the new school,  but it has also been challenging.  We don't have many options close by that have good testing scores. Our kids were uncomfortable,  and I felt that they needed more challenges at school, rather than being bored waiting on classmates to catch up.

So far, we love the new school. They are more strict and follow through with discipline instead of brushing the kids off and letting the behaviors escalate.  The new school also uses Seven Habits of Highly Effective People as a guideline for helping the kids reach their educational and life goals. So the kids spend time in their first class learning techniques that encourage  I always want to support our local districts, but with this school we have given up.   I wish we had a better option available for our 7 year old son,  who is still at the old school.  He's doing well although he really does want to move to the new school soon.

Just going to keep on praying that he gets in soon.





The kids had a Monster Dash at the charter school.  



(I love how they encourage Health, Fitness and good values...love our charter school.)

  1. I've just recently been looking into charter schools as an option for my kids. I've heard nothing but good news about them, and we have a few around our area. The only thing that sucks is the waiting list! I hope your son gets in soon! :)
