How many of you went to private school and what are the advantages & disadvantages? I think private school is a safer route although not a guarantee for success. However DH thinks we should be saving for our retirement ! Of course, I cannot help thinking how many LV bags I could buy by not paying private tuition Many private schools in NYC accept students from age 3, after that admissions become much more difficult. DD turns 2 next month, please help us decide. Since both DH and I were not educated in this country, we don't have first hand experience, please share yours. Much appreciated !
