Hello everyone, I have a daughter who will enter elementary school soon. I am trying to decide which type of school might suit her. We live in California. I have been told by her preschool teachers that my daughter loses focus easily and needs to be reminded constantly to pay attention. We changed to another preschool and the same thing happened. She is more attentive in smaller groups or if the activity is really of interest to her. I initially thought that a public school might be a better fit, considering the fact that they might be able to provide some additional support (504 plan, etc) if required. However, a couple of acquaintances who have grown up children say that private school would be better as the teachers make sure that no one is left out and send out notes to keep the parents informed. Another issue, is regarding the rating of public schools. In general, higher the % of asian population, higher the rating of public school. I am not very keen on sending her to top ranked public schools given that she has concentration issues and I don’t want her to be under pressure and its very competitive. But again, I heard that an average ranked public school has comparatively less asians, and more students from other ethnicities and it can have some drawbacks too. Ladies, I would like to hear from you some suggestions/ your personal experiences.
