For the past four years, Christina has been attending an alternative school within the public school board. Alternative schools “usually feature a small student population, a commitment to innovative and experimental programs, and volunteer commitment from parents and other community members.”
Christina’s school ends at her current grade, which means that we’ve been on the search for a good school for her next year. That search ended this week.
The good news: She’s in an alternative school for grades 7-8. It’s an amazing school which is hard to get into, and we feel blessed that she’s been accepted.
The bad news: It’s the other side of the city. We will have to get used to the idea of her taking the subway clear across the city. And that will be a little bit hard.
Good thing we have half a year to get used to the idea. It’s hard to let go of kids as they grow up!
