Need advice: Thinking of moving to PA for the schools
Original post made by Redwood Shores mom on Dec 24, 2009
- I know scores are not everything. Are there other factors that make the Palo Alto schools great (especially compared to similar scoring schools outside the district)?
- I've read a lot about the "pressure cooker" atmosphere at the high schools. For parents/students who have gone through Paly/Gunn..in retrospect, do you think it's better to be a small fish in a big pond (i.e. struggle to compete in an excellent high school), or a big fish in a small pond (be a top student in an above average high school)?
Given how much more expensive Palo Alto is than Redwood Shores, I can't help but wonder whether the move is worth it. Greatly appreciate the feedback!
