Checking Out High Schools

If you can believe this, it's time to start thinking about high schools. We attended an open house for the popular Sharon Academy, where many of our friends attend. They are famous for having a warm and progressive approach to schooling, and it gets high marks from people for having nice kids who treat each other with respect. Since we know so many people who go there, I've always had a sense of what the school is like, and talking to the students, they love the place. I think they have a lot of fun and do all sorts of interesting activities.

The school definitely has a progressive approach, and it really reminded me of Waldorf. In fact, it is a favored destination of Waldorf kids, many of whom end up there. We think it could be a viable choice so we'll keep it in mind, but will explore all of our options before we jump into this. In meantime, we'll set up a visit and interview while looking at other schools. This should be interesting.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Michael Locke for the pic.
