I have two great children, Mataya is 6 and deVaughn is soon to be 5. both attended private school last year and I loved the school. Unfortunetly divorce and a couple other turn of events leaves me penniless- and living paycheck to paycheck leaves no money for the school of my choice- Dobson Montessori. Are ther any programs available to assit with funding private middle schools? Help please. My children have endured a lot the past year, I really would love to keep them in the same school - the stability of friends, teachers and familiarity would be in their best interest.

My daughter has a severe learning disability, ADHD and dyslexia. Public school was failing her!!!! Public school is not set up to teach students with even the slightest learning disabilty. I am a special ed. teacher at our local high school. I work hard daily to help my students succeed and keep them in school. By the time they get to h.s. they are tired of trying and failing. I do not want this for my daughter! There is a school in a neighboring town that is for students with learning disabilities. My daughter has made incredible gains! they have discovered talents and strengths in her that the public school would have never found. Public school will keep passing them on. Most of these kids will never get a high school diploma.
Yes, I chose for my daughter to attend this private school but my daughter deserves a free and APPROPRIATE education just like yours, reagardless of a learning disability! You have no idea what parents of these children experience. Be thankful that you do not need to go to the ends of the earth to discover your child's talents and strengths. Until you have experienced my situation or anyone else, maybe you should bite your tongue!
i was searching for scholarship on the net, i clicked and clicked and landed on this page.hoping to find someone or some groups to help me out. its too silly to bring this up on this page for the rest to read but i just wanted to share this.....I too got 2 kids, 6 and 3 yrs of age...the younger one in nursery and the older one is in grade 2 now(he has been accelerated to grade 1 after kinder 1(suppose to be in kinder 2), when he got to grade 1, i never expected much, i just told myself it would be alright for him to cope with his classmates knowing that he was to young to be with the group, but after a year in that level i was so surprised to know that i was invited in their school's Honor's Day...Surprised to know that he was in the honor's list and more when the teacher let me realized that he topped the 50 students in grade 1....my heart was so overwhelmed to climb the stage to pin his first ever medal..i was so happy and so proud..even prouder when his name was called again(and i have to go to the stage again) to give him the Proficiency award in Filipino, Science, English and even Math, to think that he was the youngest. I was so happy....he is still in that school( a small but a well known private school in our city)..i wanted his knowledge to be developed,i wanted him to succeed, and i dont want my financial status to be a hindrance to his future...i cant stop dreaming for my kids success...i really would appreciate to know someone or somebody who could share some of their blessings..i know my kids will have a long way to go...if you could help i'll be so happy...thank you so much
from saidee private schools are expensive but the learning experience is worth it , chanze has approx 7 in his class so he gets more time spent with him as does each child there. its very important to me as chanze comes first before anything. as im sure you feel the same as were trying to find financial help.the school chanze goes to inis mtn. home christain acdemy in mtn home ,arkansas
Hi! Well, most federal and non-governmental grants for attending elementary schools are intended for low-income families, minority kids or children with disabilities. But it is not unlikely that there are a limited number of grants that could be for attending private schools. Browsing AidPage could help you find the right grant or loan. Besides grants, loans for education are also available, so if you insist that your kids go to the same school, a loan could be the last resort. Also, the school itself might be able to provide some kind of support, or at least apply for those grants, the beneficiaries of which are organizations rather than individuals. So, you may want to check with Dobson Montessori if they have any plans for financial assistance.
