Quote from: Jon Sharpe on September 22, 2018, 02:26:29 PMAs a father of a 16-year-old high school junior and 18-year-old college freshman, I can tell you what we did. We paid for Montessori pre-k which was great and then moved into a good school district and started them in Kindergarten all the way through the public system. I can tell you that the education they have received has been outstanding. Being in a good school district also helps to maintain and grow property values. If you don't live in a good school district, then I think you have some difficult choices to make, unless tuition for the private schools is not an issue.
Quote from: kiquos on September 20, 2018, 08:07:33 AMIn Central FL, fully Private Christian (only ones here) Schools are about $11k for Pre-K, and up towards $15k for High School/year on the low end and up to $20k on high end schools sometimes a little more in the fees they throw in later (like field trips, teacher gifts etc..)The Hybrid we go to I pay $10k /year for 2 kids (due to partial Homeschooling). Hope this helps...
Quote from: Sam on October 29, 2018, 04:31:55 PM I just met a realtor who is sending his twins two pre-K private school for $30,000 each. He says he have to donate another $3000 each for fundraising. Spending at least $66,000 for two kids who are three years old is simply ridiculous. I'd rather just live overseas instead, as the school is sending his twin two is a Mandarin immersion school.
