What are the pluses and minuses of big vs. small school systems in Lower Wsch? Our oldest would start K in 2011, so we haven't yet seen how public schools work, but we really want to start in a system that they can finish in, should we choose to.

We aren't looking for a pressure-cooker environment since that's just not our style...and he has ADHD and are unsure of how this will impact his education (if at all). I have little tolerance for bullying, so I'm leaning small (small is better for that, yes?) but we also want to make sure that the small schools aren't at a significant disadvantage with sports, classes, etc.

We don't even know what we don't know yet, so we have no idea what our preference is. Help!
