Madeline talked about the school being "private school at a public school price," but surely all these wealthy mothers would have their kids enrolled in private school, right? I have lived in three of the major areas of California (Bay Area, Los Angeles/Orange County, and San Diego) and there is always at least one neighborhood that's so affluent that many of the kids attend public school. As Madeline said, they are getting a private school education at a public school (translation: why spend an additional $20K+ per kid each year if you don't have to?). Depending on the way the school district/city boundaries are set up, sometimes there's a really nice elementary school for a particular neighborhood and eventually it feeds into a less than stellar middle school or high school so the kids don't start private school until later. In other neighborhoods, the entire school district is nice enough that the kids attend public school all the way from pre-K through high school. 11 Link to comment
