I know my son is little (14 months) but I'm already starting to think about schools. He's my first so I don't know quite how to approach it. I want to start him in a gifted accelerated progam at age 3 in a private school because they seem to be the best but I don't know. Private schools are so expensive, arround 15 thousand dollars!! Plus the one I would like him to go to we would have to drive a half hour to an hour for him to go to. I don't want to plan buying our house around where I want my son to go to school but it doesn't seem fair to have a toddler commute an hour a day. I was extremely poor growing up and went to a public school and my education was terrible!! I want better for my kiddo. Is relocating and buying a house I'm not thrilled about nuts? What is everyone else planning on doing? What kind of school curriculum is best? How do you know if the school is good? What is a blue ribbon school vs a five star school? How many are planning on home schooling their little ones? Are their toddler tutors?
