I know what you’re thinking, why would you want to do that, what’s wrong with the kid, why not support public schools? Well we have no choice in funding public education in school buildings; private schools are not what they’re cracked up to be, and home school worked out great for my grandchildren. Not all of them were homeschooled. It has a bad reputation. But with the offerings you can search for as a teacher, your children can reap the benefits. There are many different curricula in computer based programs. It takes dedication and perseverance on you and your child’s part. Below is just one of many outside activities you may participate in:

University of Wyoming ENZI STEM laboratories:

The instructor was impressed with her abilities and allowed her to take home the robotic car she made.

Depending on where you live, school choices, and opportunities available, homeschooling is a definite benefit. L is socialized well through athletics and other groups. Two of her older sisters were also homeschooled and both received full ride scholarships. It does take work on all parties, but we have seen the rewards.

  1. My daughter has autism and attended public school for 2 years of preschool through 1/2 of first grade. The school she was at was great, but she couldn’t handle the atmosphere of school. I brought her home to homeschool and she is doing well. If she needs a day off because of lack of sleep or lack of focus she can have it. I love doing it and I wish I could have done it for my older children.

  2. I agree completely. One reason we moved to CO from Houston was our children were getting to be school aged and we didn’t want them going there. Similar choices available.


  3. I home schooled both my children. We moved from virginia (great schools) to Texas (really BAD schools) back in 1991. El Paso public schools had lost their accreditation and private schools were “too Christian” for my tastes. I taught them for the next four years. My eldest graduated at the age of 15 from high school using an accelerated curricula. The youngest did one year at a ‘real school” for his senior class year, and graduated at 16. Both tested at the highest percentiles of kids in their classes on several pre-college tests (ACT , TAAS, etc) They were both more social with both adults and kids, had tons of extra-curricular activities. I honestly think kids that are home schooled, come out of the experience far more ready for the “real world” than those who take the public school route.
