Hi everyone, I've been thinking about changing schools, and I want to hear what parents think. My school switched to a new program, where the students teach themselves, literally. The teachers are only there as guides. We also do all group work now, and i've been stuck doing other peoples work. Its frustrating. I've nearly cried before, it makes me so mad. The class sizes are ridiculous-ive had over 50 people in one class in a school with around 750 students total. I haven't learned anything last year, or this year, and I'm one of those people who want to learn. I have amazing friends, and a great music teacher here though.
There's one school nearby that I could go to with decent academics, but one of my friends who goes there says its not very challenging.
I found a boarding school online, that I really liked. They had outstanding academics, a teriffic riding program, dance classes, and great performing arts programs (im in drama, choir, ect). It feels like the perfect place for me, and I dream about going there. The only problem is, its insanely expensive. I know we can afford to go there, but it would be an investment. My parents would have to take it out of savings (my dads a penny pincher). I know it isnt right or fair to ask them to do this for me, but I feel like I belong there. I know I could fly there. Its everything I ever wanted, like my dream school. But is it really fair though?
