sending kids back home for schooling

Post Posted: Fri Nov 26, 2004 7:20 pm

Has anyone sent a kid back home to their previous school?
How did it go? Was it a positive experience?
Let me know,
Corina

HI!
I am a new member here, and I just read your post about sending kids home (to the US I am assuming) to return to their former school. We are strongly considering (planning stages) a move to the UK, and have two school age children.

I was wondering, and if I may ask, why you are considering it? Is it due to the schooling where you live now? Or was the school here in the US just really terrific? That is something I am thinking about as well, our school here for the children is really great, and plays a huge factor in our move.

Hi Kristina,
I'm reading your message for the first time.
Did you do it ? Did you move to the UK?
We did send our kid back. It was difficult for us, great for him. It was only 3 1/2 months , but he was only 13. He left shorter than me , came back taller.
The public schools in Italy are not very dynamic, very old school. Learning by rote and very sctrict. We now send all 3 to a private IB International school.
