Our family recently moved to STX and includes 3 school aged kids. We naively thought that we could put the kids in public school - how bad could it be? The more I've read and learned from talking with locals, the more I believe that either private school or homeschool are our two only options.
Good Hope Country Day is totally out of our price range because of the cost - sending three kids there would be impossible for us. To my knowledge that is the only non-parochial school on the island. Our family isn't religious, we do however openly discuss different religions and cultures and are open to all people. My husband and I were both raised in strict Baptist homes and have steered clear of that with our children. I think most of the Parochial schools require that you be of that religion, which is the case back home - don't know about here.
I wish there was an affordable private school option that didn't involve religion. Is there a homeschool group on the island? I would consider homeschooling if the kids could be active with others.
I have read through these forums many times, I'm just hoping to get some feedback, any options that I have seen or what am I missing?
