We've been off checking out a school for eldest for next year, there are two main options, the local public, which I may have mentioned, in which she will study Catalan, Castillian, math and English all year and everything else some of the year. A mite narrow don't you think? It is also a big school (not by TO standards, but still) and the teachers do not push the students at all...you get out what you put in.
I was worried.
The other school we are looking at has...
Year round, plus optionals.
Plus it is much more family like, and involves the students more closely...
It is looking like we will be signing Eldest up as soon as we can.
Tuesday night we have a meeting with the head of studies from the public school.
We'll see what happens.
The real difficulty is the intangibles...will there be kids there she likes?
