Hello, I am a former northerner who has been living in the south for the past seven years, and ultimately very disappointed with the school services that are available. I have been told to move north to find better schools with better services and more resources for our child who needs a lot of services. I am wondering what states are best equipped whether it be north mid west or north east United States to be able to provide services in a small classroom. She is mainstreamed but just needs a smaller student teacher ratio and potentially an aid for social and emotional coaching. She has a 135 IQ. Our housing budget is 700s to 800s for a standalone house. Any suggestions are welcome. We are two hard-working people who work from home and can live anywhere. We do pay for private services such as psychiatry and OT. We do not want to homeschool as I do telehealth from home and do not have the bandwidth to be able to do that. I also recognize that I am not an educator and cut out for that role which I take very seriously.

probably any North state, but especially in suburban school districts near a big city is usually your best or safest best.

Another option is to look for states that allow cyber schools- I know PA, NC, TX, and ID are states that allow. If your child has an IEP, they can still engage and not be too distracted, and have the potential to go at a faster pace than normal in a cyber environment

Do you like where you live now aside from the schools? Have you explored private schools?

Just saw your other thread(s). Lots of good suggestions already.

IMO - you're going to struggle with the shotgun approach. I live in an area with "great" schools, and sometimes even hear people complaining.
