somehow the time to choose a kindergarten for olive is upon us. i thought i had until the summer but apparently if we are choosing to lottery her into any school besides where our district assigns her our forms have to be in by next week. the choice is really only between two schools: clinton and indianola.
pros: top rated elementary school in the city (highly ranked in the whole state!), augustine already goes there so i'm already familiar with the teachers and classmates.
cons: the school is only k-5 which means we'd either have to lottery her (them) for middle school or be content with their district assigned middle school which is kind of meh. the school is about a 1 1/2 miles away.
pros: the school is right down the street, it's k-8, it's a good school, it's an "informal teaching style".
cons: moving augustine schools, getting acclimated to a new school/teachers, it's not as good as clinton.
first world problems here folks! both schools are great. we don't have anything bad to say about clinton, far from it! but the middle school issue is a big one. i don't know a ton about our middle school but what i do know is that it's pretty typical public city school. the quality of education would be consistent throughout at indianola. so big picture "good" school vs. incredible elementary and "par" middle school is the conundrum basically.
advice would be fantastico.
