We are considering relocating to the Southern Vermont area. My parents have a home in Arlington and we visit frequently. We just love the way of life and peace there. Right now, we live in a very large city in Texas and it's not where we would like to raise our two daughters. We want a place with more outdoor activity and great schools. If we were to stay here, we would send them to private school. I recently found out about Vermont's "school choice." We would be interested in sending them to Maple Street School and Burr & Burton. Does anybody know if Vermont's school choice laws would be changing or are in the direction to change? By the way, with my husband's job, we can pretty much live anywhere. Thanks for the help.

If you live in Arlington your kids will have to go to Arlington schools. You'd have to pay tuition to go to BBA. If you live in Manchester or Sunderland your kids can go to BBA at taxpayers expense. Not sure about Maple Street School.

Yes, we would not live in Arlington. More than likely we would live where we would pay tuition for Maple Street School but not BBA. I know there is quite a few towns that offer that. Besides loving the beauty and way of life there, we also know that these are very great schools. Moving there is something my husband and I have always planned on doing but we may just do it sooner to send our girls to these schools.

OP. you sound just like me when I decide to up and move 2263 miles just for the fact I didn't want my kiddo to go to school in Houston. I even paid $5200 for pre-k. St J Academy drew me in, as it does people world wide. Peace of mind in regard to your everyday life and your children in priceless.
