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

DD and DS2's is a 4 min. bus ride. It's a mile away.

DS1 usually walks and it's .5 miles away.

For DS1's school 3 mins on a motorbike. 10 mins by bus.

DS2's preschool ..I can literally just drop him over the fence next door. 1 minute walk. Moms with kids who cry at drop offs are super jealous of our location!

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

We homeschool, and do speech once a week at the elementary school. I can see it from my backyard, so I want to say it's 1/4 mile away. The middle school is maybe 1 mile, and the high school maybe 5 miles. I live in a pretty dense, populated area with a lot of schools.

If they went to our community school it would be a 5 minute walk; however they go to the school across the street from my work so it is a 10minute drive

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

When my kids were in private school for 4 years the commute was an hour away (meaning I was on the road for 4 hours each day!). Now, I'm homeschooling 4 of my 6 kids, and the two in public school are only about 1.5 miles away- just a few minute's drive for us.

Us too! We are 2 blocks from the school.
I actually gave our realtor the city map with the French Imm schools marked and told him we needed to be walking distance.

In Gr 8-12 the high school will be a city bus trip. 15 minutes or so? It would be walking distance if she were in the English program.

Growing up we lived behind the elementary school and the jr high was a 25 minute walk and the high school was about 30 minutes on the city bus I seem to remember.

About 1.5 miles away. Private school. The public they would go to is about 4 blocks away.

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

5 miles, 15 minute drive to the public preschool on the other side of town. I anticipate sending my kids to public schools and never living in a rural area, so I hope that is about the furthest their commute will ever be.
