It really depends on the child's personality and ability, I think, so it's hard to generalise. I have one child who likes challenge, and another who will do better in a less challenging, safer environment.

Yes, this is my kids first consideration. After that, the nearer home the better.

Yup, I strongly agree. It really does depend on the child's personality and ability. However, I also think that the distance, size and how good the school is will also be important to consider.
