I spent the morning touring a new school for my kids. Currently the kids are in a K-8 school and it’s a good one. My son has been there since Kindergarten and my daughter joined in third grade. Right now they’re having some changes, and I’m not sure that the school will continue being a match for both my kids.
The school that I toured this morning is stunning. There are views of the city, the pacific ocean and the San Fernando Valley. This is a school for royalty. The academics are solid, and don’t appear to be whimsical or overly progressive. It’s a very good school.
I felt like I was having an affair. I felt like a bad mom just for looking at another school. I know my children love the school that they are at, and that it’s very good.
I’m looking for a small school for my children that has progressive moments without being a rudderless ship. I’m looking for a school that teaches character, responsibility, doing good for no external reward and how to work hard.
The school I saw today has all those things, but I can’t get over the very bad feeling that I don’t want my children to leave where they are.
