Depends on traffic, but about 45 min each morning. Going home is closer to 20 without traffic

Elementary is all zoned so most people are very close, ours is less than a mile away. We can walk there in 10-15 min or drive in 5. Middle school and high school will be a little farther, probably 10-15 min drive. None of the districts around here have school buses anymore, they got cut ages ago for budget reasons.

Re: How long is your child's school commute?

5 mins by me driving them. If they road the bus it would be about 15mins. We are lucky to live right around the corner from our school. We are not in walking distance because we live on the main road.

When my kids were in public school, they had a 10-15 minute drive by car or about 30-45 minutes by bus.

The elementary school my oldest goes to is about 10-15 minutes when I drive him. Riding the bus takes an hour. Living in the boonies has its disadvantages.

Elementary - 3 minute car ride.
Middle - 10-15 minute bus ride.
High - 10-15 minute bus ride or 10-15 minute walk depending on what HS they will go to.

My kids' school is a few miles away, it takes about 5 minutes to drive there. The local public school is about the same distance, the neighbor kids who ride the bus get home 25 minutes after their school lets out. The public high school my sister goes to is 15 miles away but at least an hour bus ride, it's the first stop in the morning and last one at night. She drives herself and it takes 10-15 minutes.

Re: How long is your child's school commute?

We're maybe 3-5 miles from the elementary school. My older kids ride the bus. My preschooler has to be driven to school, as she attends half day, but she rides home on the bus with her sisters.
