Hi!

Our family is moving to the Pittsburgh area next summer, so we're starting to gather info.

***Does anyone have an AP friendly pediatrician to recommend? We co-sleep, don't circ, babywear, and allow our children to self-wean from BF.

Our eldest will likely attend school for two years, but we plan to homeschool after that. So two questions -

***Is there a good Montessori school for 1st and 2nd grade?

***Are there certain school districts to avoid as far as HS'ing - I know the law is generally strict in PA, but it also sounds doable as long as you follow the rules.

THANK YOU!

Hi,

I don't have a lot of answers to your specific questions. However, if you search this forum for Pittsburgh, you will find a lot of helpful info.

Hope things go well for you.

There's a Pittsburgh Forum on here? I couldn't find it, is it hidden?

I couldn't find it, either - thank you, though.

Sorry if I was confusing. I meant that within this tribal area, many similar questions have been asked about the pittsburgh area. So if you do a search for "pittsburgh" on MDC, you may get some results.

I know this is a very old thread, but if you haven't found a Montessori elementary school yet, try The Glen Montessori.  They go through 6th grade.  My DDs both go there, and I teach there!
