When we lived in Jackson (just outside of Cape Girardeau) we took our DDs out of the public schools and put them into a private school. It was the best thing for our DDs. They literally blossomed.

We felt that the public schools were too interested in test scores and not the kids. For about 2 weeks before the standardized tests, the classes would almost exclusively do practice tests. That is why they have fairly high test scores. I did not want my DDs to be coached to improve their test scores.
