It wasn't my first choice, but they have a great reputation, and the elementary and middle schools have super high test scores, and their high school is the highest ranked in the city!<br><br>
I'm really excited!

<p>That is so awesome! I hope he has an enriching experience there. Congratulations to you and your son. Is there a theme to the school? Some of the charters here have themes like an international school, an arts school etc...</p>

<p>Excellent, hopefully this will put a solid routine to Lincoln's visitation schedule for the next oh.. 15 years or so!</p>
<p> YEAH for school, and don't forget you can still keep your name on the 1st choice school list for years to come!</p>

<br><br><p>I think the theme is, "Take African American students and make sure they go to college and succeed"  My son will be one of 2% of white students there, and the high school (if we stay in the same charter until then) has 0% white students, and 100% African American. That doesn't bother me, because they have great rankings, but it does make me wonder why the percentage is so high AA and doesn't have any other racial/ethnic groups.</p>

<br><br><p>Yup!! It's all falling into place! And, come fall, I think (<em>think</em>) I'll be financially independent of ex's child support!! I already don't use the "support" money, but am dependent on him paying for his half of childcare (which is more than the support payments!). Depending on how much after school care costs, I might be able to save his entire contribution every month! Which gets me closer to my own personal goal of buying a house or condo!!</p>
