The 2010 School Guide

Finding the right school for your child has never been easy, but with today’s faltering economy, the stakes are even higher. If you become disenchanted with your local public school, will you be able to sell your home and relocate? If your child falls in love with her private school, what happens if you lose your job and can’t pay tuition? According to our survey, more than one-third of private schools lost more students than usual when it came time to reenroll last fall. And every family is paying close attention to their options. In this year’s research for our annual school guide, we asked both public and private schools how the economy has affected their enrollment and services. We asked families how they weigh the pros and cons. And once again we’ve produced Atlanta’s most comprehensive guide to local primary and secondary schools.
