Our Experience Transitioning from Home School to Public School

Our Experience Transitioning from Home School to Public School by Laura Sepanski

We homeschooled our 3 children from kindergarten through 6th grade, and as each entered 7th grade, she or he began attending Midway Middle School. The transition was pretty rough on our oldest, mostly socially, but the younger two glided in effortlessly despite me bracing myself for nights in tears. Making a change from home to public or private school will vary depending on the school and district, your child’s personality, academic level and extracurricular interests, and many other factors, but I will try to share what helped us in our journey.
