Why do we Home School?
For all of the socialization opportunities of course.
The time has come, and the decision has been made. Our daughter will be moving on to a "formal" school.
Honestly the time is right for this and we are not just sending her off to the local public schools, nor will she be going to a private school.
After a long search I found a Charter School in our county that fit both her interests and learning style. We feel that we are actually holding her back at this point and the Sussex County Charter School is the perfect fit for all of us. We continue to HS our son until that same day comes for him. And I will continue to include some of our comments and experiences so far.
A quick update, our daughter finished 3rd in her class in high school and is now away at college studying Architecture. Our son is now a Junior in high school and doing quite well.
