I live in Boulder CO, where the myth is that the school district, BVSD is "excellent." You'll hear this tale from everyone in town EXCEPT parents who have or have had kids in the schools. If your child is not 100% mainstream, BVSD is a nightmare.
But I started to think the myth is perpetuated by all of us here who know our homes are way over-priced and don't want to rock the boat. Anyone else out there who thinks there is a connection? What are your experiences with so-called "excellent" districts?
