Interested in OG opinions. Would you rather your 5 year old -
1) Go to first grade in Montana, small town. Grades k-5 in one school, about 120 students total. Population is mostly farm kids, children of restaurant and shops owners, tourism industry workers (fair number of ski bums, park rangers, etc). Parents are all familiar and fairly easy to get along with, a couple meth heads otherwise. School will teach reading, writing and math.
2) Go to kindergarten in Washington DC, very good public school pre k to 5th grade. About 450 students. School is pretty urban, 2/3-1/3 white/black. Parents are a mix of political type people, blacks probably getting lotteried in, milfs in yoga pants - all seem annoying as hell. School has music, language, and all other kinds of fancy academic stuff.
