Public schools in higher socioeconomic areas oftentimes mirror the quality of the private schools anyway, so why pay for something you can get for free (that is, that you're already paying for)?

Yes, exactly. In the math path my daughter is on in her Middle school now, she will have Calculus 2 in her senior year of High school...so...how much more can I expect in a private school? That is a college level course already! Plus she gets band, some extra curriculars that I like, I don't have to drive her to school, and the friends she attends school with all live nearby - which is great for her social life! And, I get the added bonus of saving that money for college!

Exactly! What are they thinking
