Hi Atlanta mamas<br><br>
I have a five and half year old. I plan to homeschool but need to consider other schooling options. Please give me your recommendations on small private schools, charter schools, co-ops and homeschooling contacts.<br><br>
I look forward to the information.<br><br>

Since we have not bought a home yet all areas are options for us. We have looked near fayetteville, McDonough, Decatur, Conyers, walton county and up near Alpharetta. so we may end up being guided by the school because if we do school I do not want to spend all my time driving<br><br>
the school being small or at least small classes is real important along with its general philosophy and type of teaching.<br><br>

City Schools of Decatur are great. Highly regarded, small city school system, small class size, neighborhood schools. My oldest will start first grade there in the fall and I have a really good feeling about the school where he will go.<br><a href="http://www.decatur-ga.com/" target="_blank">http://www.decatur-ga.com/</a><br>
I live in Decatur, I can't say enough good things about it, it is everyplace I want to live and raise my kids...but it ain't cheap, unfortunately.<br><br>
There is also a Waldorf School in Decatur <a href="http://www.waldorfatlanta.org/" target="_blank">http://www.waldorfatlanta.org/</a><br>
and a Friends School <a href="http://www.friendsschoolatlanta.org/" target="_blank">http://www.friendsschoolatlanta.org/</a><br>
and Arbor Montessori (not actually in Decatur, but not too far away)<br><a href="http://www.arbormontessori.org/" target="_blank">http://www.arbormontessori.org/</a><br><br>
There is also a large, active non-secular homeschooling group, LEAD, which is Decatur/Atlanta based. If you search Yahoo groups for "Lead" and "homeschooling", you should find a link to their group.<br><br>
HTH!
