Attending private school as a family without great means?
We aren’t wealthy. We would be considered middle/upper middle class based on income but we don’t have a lot of disposable income. We would not have considered private school but with the pandemic, we need kids to receive in person instruction in a safe environment. We are considering Aurora, Park Day, Redwood Day, and MCCS. I went to prestigious private schools and was quite aware of how “poor” my family were. We were not poor by any means, but as a kid with scholarship, I felt that way when surrounded by a majority of kids who were truly wealthy — large homes, BMWs and Porsche driving parents, lavish vacations and designer clothes. I am concerned that my kids will feel out of place as we prepare to slash various household budget to pay for private school. Have you sent your kids to these fancy schools as a family with moderate means? How was/is it?
