roanna Posted September 12, 2012 Share Posted September 12, 2012 I didn't know if anyone else would be interested in this but I found it humorous but also encouraging... I saw on the news that Tom Cruises daughter went to first grade today at a school in NY and it costs $40,000 a year. I clicked on the link for the curriculum to see what special things they could possibly have and the only name brand of curriculum I saw was ..... Singapore Standards. I thought wow, I just bought this for $50 for a semester. I'm glad I can give my kids a quality education for a lot less. I admit I don't have enough money to send my kids to pottery art classes like it mentions or a 1/2 day immersion in Spanish or Chinese but if I really wanted to I am sure it wouldn't even come close to $40,000. I just feel great that I can say , hey, my kid uses the same math her! Nothing too special about that school! :) If you want to see it ... http://www.avenues.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/LowerSchool_CurriculumChart.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
