I'm hoping to get a bit of insight into private schools.
My ex has espressed an interest in sending our dd to a private school with him offering to pay the extra expense. So I have done a bit of research into the schools around our area.
We both would like to send dd somewhere with strict discipline and obviously to gain a good education.
Now I don't want to offend anyone or start a debate or anything about religion or public vs private but I don't know what's the right thing to do.
I went to public schools and turned out just fine so I'm not against them, I'm just looking at this option now that it is available.
I am not at all religious and neither is the ex and to be honest I have no interest whatsoever in changing my ways. I don't mind dd learning about religion but looking at the websites they spend a lot of time on religion with daily devotion, prayer, chapel etc. Is it going to cause problems with dd learning this stuff and coming home to me with questions that I can't answer, or will my way of life conflict with hers, ie praying before bed, at meal times etc. I'm sure I am coming across as completely ignorant but I just don't feel that I could ask these kinds of things to the schools.
A few of the schools state that they accept children from non religious families but they interview the parents, I would feel so awkward telling them I want dd to go there but i'm not interested in it myself you know?
So I guess I'm after anyone elses experiences. Thanks for reading this far!
