Did you ever consider private school?

I'm curious mommas, did you ever or will you consider sending your child to private school? For what reason did or would you?

I am considering it with my youngest due to his Aspergers. I am deciding between private school for children like him, homeschooling or... I don't know. I just feel like middle school will be too much for him. I could be wrong and worrying over nothing, I have a year to decide.

Besides for religious reasons what reason would you send your child to private school?

    We sent Alexis to a private school that our insurance paid for. It was partial hospitalization it's for kids with ADHD and other problems. She did well there.
      Smaller student-teacher ratio. My mom sent my older siblings to a private Christian school then worked as a bus driver to pay tuiton. I was along for the rides as I was too little to be in school.
        I would contemplate sending a child to private school for academic reasons because I find public school (most places) lacking in that regard.
