PAUSD vs. private for elementary school
Original post made by rp on Jul 9, 2008
We're looking for a balanced approach to education: something that will both challenge and interest him (perhaps something developmental). We definitely do not want an education that is high-stress, standards-based, and puts too much emphasis on core curriculum to the exclusion of other subjects.
While many private schools have missions similar to our preferences (plus with small class sizes and diverse curricula), every review I've ever seen about PAUSD elementary schools is just stellar.
Any thoughts from parents who've faced this decision before would be greatly appreciated. Especially, what you chose (public or private) and why.
Thanks for your help.
