On the Road to Middle School

This photo was taken in 2012, during the first few days of Ryan’s preschool experience. He is almost 4 1/2 in this photo.

My son is already halfway through his fourth grade year.  That means he has one more year at his elementary school, and then he’ll move on to middle school.

And that’s where it gets tricky, because there’s a lot of talk out there about “good” and “not-so-good” middle schools, about finding the “best” middle school for your child. 

We’re trying to figure it out.  And as I tend to do with matters that are concerning or confusing, I wrote about it.  Click here to be re-directed to MomsLA.com to read my personal essay, “Navigating the Road to Middle School.”

    • John, for a lot of families home-schooling is the right choice. I know for us, it wouldn’t be. I believe there is so much to learn in school, way beyond academics, that you can only really learn in a school setting.
