What makes a public school a good school?
As I've been researching elementary schools in Tallahassee, I've looked at so many numbers, grades, and percentages that it makes my head spin. What is it that really makes a school a good school? Some schools may not score well on State mandated tests but may turn out students who later become doctors, lawyers, or engineers -- so in choosing a school for next year, what should I really look at?
Autumn is smart and I am dedicated to making her school experience a good one and supplementing the education she gets in school - so what do you think? Does it matter where she goes?
This is open-ended and I would love to hear your thoughts! I haven't made a decision and am still collecting information at this stage.
By the way...I am not ruling out homeschooling as an option either.
