Unhappy in local school- worth the price to move to Albany?
We have one kid in a public elementary (and a toddler), and are unhappy with our assigned choice and teacher, although we love our neighborhood. We know all three Albany public elementary schools are highly rated and are considering moving. We are homeowners, so we'd have to sell and a house of the same size in Albany is roughly $500k more. Has anyone done this? Is it worth the price? Another alternative is to stay where we are and pay for private school, which is probably just as expensive in the end. We've already tried to transfer in-district and transfer to another classroom in the school, but neither are options this year.
Do Albany public elementary schools things like technology classes, foreign languages, art teachers, and music classes that all the private schools seem to offer? Is it worth it?
