My son just started this school year (2017-2018). He was previously in a catholic school but we decided to transfer him to Green Hills School because of the cost (it's free), the reputation of the school (good to excellent feedback based on neighbors), it's closer to us (less than 10 mins by school bus) and every summer, he attends summer camp at the school so he's met a few friends. So when he started, my wife and I were very apprehensive. He did not make new friends until it got to about a month into school. But now, he's enjoying it. He's doing very well in school (5th grader, high honors), the teachers enjoy having him in school, he's made new friends and he's also part of the gifted and talented program in school. Overall, we could not have been happier with our decision. And also, he comes home an hour earlier than he used to, so he has time to do his homework (yes, they have homework) and to relax and play a bit. And yes, there are not too many minorities in the school. My wife and I are Asian, so we are part of that minority. But we've never felt discriminated or something to that effect. Teachers and parents have been accommodating. We're lucky to be in this school district. I know some friends of ours who tried to get their son/daughter into this school, but could not as they are not from Green. They do accept children from other neighborhoods, but it's a lottery system, I believe. But if you can get into this school, your child will enjoy it. Our son did and is still enjoying it.

We provide an overview and current status of the Race to the Top program that was designed as an incentive and funding program to promote education reform in public school districts across the country.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
