I'm also wondering what choice your children prefer?
If they prefer the mid-year transfer to the public school, I'd probably follow through with it.
They may be repeating some material when the school starts the second block of courses in the new year. If you are able to schedule the courses that you think are lacking in their current school, I don't think that's a big disadvantage. It may actually be an advantage, since they will not have to catch up on missed work. So if they can take their heavier courses (maths, science, etc.) in the second block, that will work out nicely, won't it? There will be a little repetition, but mostly they will get the benefit of a full course in the subjects that you are concerned haven't been taught well so far. Or have I misunderstood?
Depending on how motivated they are and how accommodating the new school is, I wouldn't be too concerned about missed material. That's a big "depending" though. We've moved mid-year to an entirely new school system in a different country and the kids have had to play catch up. The school was pretty understanding and the kids were motivated, so they managed.
Otherwise, I think the end-of-year transfer is more natural. I'm wondering how you and your children will manage for the next 8 months, until June 2011, if you are all unhappy with the current school and the situation doesn't improve at all. That's a long time to struggle.
