I can't even begin to tell you just how much we have loved our new school this past year. Having the ability to manage my kids' education homeschool-style while still being able to attend elective classes on campus with excellent teachers and a laid-back environment. All 100% what I have been looking for since my oldest enrolled in Kindergarten.
It has been such a breath of fresh air for all of us. It was a little difficult in the beginning, for the kids, making new friends and learning a new way of doing school. But even back in the very first days, while missing their old friends, they adamantly reinforced the fact that they were glad to not be going to their old school anymore.
On the last day of our school year, the entire school (K-12) were invited to a joint field trip at a local amusement park. It was great to see kids of all ages interacting and having fun, dodging rain showers, laughing, eating together, making memories. And the fact that we got to do it together as a whole family made it even better.
