Sounds painfully insecure. Like sending her kids to private is really going to be a sacrifice and she has to continuously justify it to herself. I am very grateful for my private school education (mostly because of the people I met and the doors it opened, less so about the education itself) and I would like my DC to have the same, but I would never, ever look down on someone who either chose to send their kid to public or did so out of necessity (shut out, could not afford, etc). As with all things in life, the louder someone yells, the more they're trying to drown out the voices in their own head. [ Reply | More ]

General Topics 10.20.14, 08:49 PM Flag

np: The schools are great. There are five elementary schools, two middle and one high school. I know families in every elementary school and everyone loves their school so I don't think you can go wrong. Some families opt for private, but it is usually for a specific reason meaning they're hard pressed to not use the Westport schools. The vibe is fairly laid back, but as in any town it's what you make of it. There are definitely those who are into money or overly concerned about what others have and then there are those who couldn't care less. The town is large enough where you can meet many different types. Lots of new, fun restaurants have opened. The town is working on improving its downtown area, and Compo Beach (which is controversial). The Sauagatuck center has revived down by the train station. The Levitt Pavillion was just redone and there is the Playhouse of course. [ Reply | More ]
