A couple years ago my daughter, then in sixth grade, was attending what we felt was a good north San Diego County private school. She approached me one day toward the end of that school year and complained that she felt she wasn't being challenged enough academically in just about every subject. She asked me if we could consider looking for an alternative school that would be more committed to academic excellence. I agreed, and we started looking at and visiting just about every school in the area. After several field trips and talking to many neighboring parents and students, we both concluded that the Rhoades School in Encinitas was the finest lower and middle school in North County. My daughter applied for and fortunately was admitted to the Rhoades School's 7th grade the following year. She is now in 8th grade and has been attending Rhoades for almost a school year and a half and it has been EVERYTHING she had hoped for. She has been far more challenged and is learning so much more in every subject including math, science, the humanities and technology. Her math and writing skills have improved tremendously. She entered her first science fair ever and went to the county and regional finals. She has learned incredible programming skills on multiple platforms and has thoroughly enjoyed it. She was encouraged and supported to enter a regional creativity contest combining the humanities and arts disciplines and won an award there as well. In short, my daughter's entire scholastic experience at the Rhoades School has been INCREDIBLE: incredibly challenging, incredibly fulfilling and incredibly fun.

With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
