i don't see any point in private school. its how you raise your children at home that will ultimately affect how they turn out in life. just keep a close eye out on who their friends are, but you don't need to worry about that until the teenage years.

Do a Google search for Houston area private schools. Their web pages will tell you how much they cost and whether scholorships or loans are available.

My daughter is 4 and half and will be going to The Galloway here in Friendswood this coming August. Tuition is a little over 6 grand per schoo year. She was also accepted (yes, you need to take entrance exams) to The Awty International school in Memorial. Now that school's tuition was over 11 grand! Thankfully I was able to convince my wife that Galloway was by far the more sensible choice.

As for why private school? Like I said, my daughter is 4 and she has a read/write vocab of about 100 words and can do math (add and subtract). A private school will be better equiped to challeng her accedemically.

I agree with buddha429 about raising kids, but for me, private school is about being better able to control your child's accedemic environment. Smaller schools provide more teacher attention and less distractions.

i'm a product of private school. and my possibly-future offspring will be sent to one as well.

but i believe that school is not a substitute for parenting like buddha and logan have expressed.

not really lookin for a substitute to parenting....i say to with it, go to public school.....and give me the money, i'll spend it wisely. but it's not my choice/decision. soon as the in-laws stop paying.....no more private school.

how the am i supposed to afford 6k-11k a year for private school?

i'm already paying that much in tuition to Longhorn Motorcycle School, LSTD School. I think my money in education is well spent.

Send the kid(s) to a good private school during their early years(pre 9th grade) then if needed pull them and send them to a school like bellaire or lamar that offer the IB programs.

i went to a private school. my parents paid 550 a month. To be perfectly honest, i felt that public schools gave me a bigger challenge. I think i was just paying for my grades.

i went to bay area christian academy and it was like 5k a year, the school is on wheels. i went there for 11years and i would hang myself before i went back there. the principals are 's as well as the teachers. in my recent experience private school is no better environmentally. the academics are way harder with excelled learning. but there are some of the worst kids in private school cause some parents see it as a reform school...IMHO

I went to both private and public high schools. In my experience the private school was much better at preparing students for university. The staff was better, curriculum was better, materials were better, even the students were better.

When I got into college the kids from private schools always seemed to adapt more readily to the more stringent courseload.

, I'd wager that you get a better education at St. John's High School than you get at a lot of colleges.

by the way, anyone here go to O'Connell in Galveston?
