Interesting comparison.

Duschene Academy and Second Baptist have high schools. Their lower and middle school kids obviously are well positioned to move into their high schools and their programs are fine.

Neither St. Francis Episcopal School nor River Oaks Baptist has high schools, so students have to leave after 8th grade. Many St. Francis students migrate to Episcopal High School, so their is a natural path for them.

Students from River Oaks Baptist disperse all over the city, including to St. John's and Kinkaid, so there is no normal path for ROBS students, but it is the most highly regarded K-8th grade program on your list.

You didn't ask about the high school implications of your choice, but it is an important factor, so I answered your question in that light.

I went to SBS for elementary bit. I also had many friends that went there. My public school put that place to shame. I would go over there sometimes and sit on tests. They were just so far behind us. My best friend transferred from my school to SBS his junior year. He said they were just really behind. Their science classes are a joke. I will say one thing I loved about SBS. Really hot girls. I also think Dr Ed Young is a sack of ****.

I have no allegiance to any of these schools, but it's obvious that you have some kind of grudge or resentment toward Second Baptist, especially given your last comment. Highly unlikely that you went over there from your public school to "sit [in] on tests".

Of course, I will leave it to the OP to take your comments for what they are worth, which isn't much.

I don't really care one way or the other. And I did sit in on their physics class. I could do their physics test in about 5-10 minutes. Then the entire class cheated off of me. It was about on the level of the basic science class I took as a freshman. [Mod cut: rude]

I agree with what Cindy said. My daughter just completed the 8th grade at ROBS. We thought the school was fantastic. It is a bit stressful applying to high schools in 8th grade. My daughter is going to Kinkaid next year, but only two others in her class are going there. This year, the majority of ROBS graduates are going to Episcopal HS followed by St. John's and Strake. There are a few more going to various other schools such as Kinkaid, St. Agnes, St. Thomas Catholic, and St. Thomas Episcopal. A few go to public schools like Memorial and Lamar.

Thanks KatieKennedy. Congratulations on your daughters acceptance to Kinkaid. Any ROB graduates going to Second Baptist or Duchesne?

Yes.

The entire class cheated off of you. They probably lined up to get the answers, or perhaps you wrote them on the board. Of course, there was no teacher present in the room during the exam. And you could complete the test in 5 or 10 minutes. Naturally.

Why wouldn't everybody believe that.

Not quite the entire class and not the entire test. I was taking AP physics at the time. And, yes they really are that far behind. [Mod cut: personal]
