Hope is reconsidering boarding school. She acknowledges that she thrived there academically and that it provides all the stuff she needs to be successful except being at home. She seems to really want to go.
So, at Hope’s request, she’d love all of you good folks to weigh in. That’s right, Hope has asked me to crowdsource votes on going to boarding school vs. her home school.
Some considerations to consider…
Home school offers
- Her band
- Her counselor
- Social connections (friends might be a stretch, but kids she knows)
- Being at home with me and Yappy
- Time *away* from school
Boarding school offers
- Smaller classes
- Fewer classes
- A lot of structure
- A different kind of routine
- Opportunities for travel
- Opportunities to come home for respite
Sure, there’s a lot of other stuff both offer in terms of emotional needs and wants, but these are the things she’s focused on this weekend. We hope to make a final decision and let both schools know by Tuesday COB! Sooooo…vote! 😊
We’ll report back early next week! Thanks for weighing in!
