    OP if you haven't found them that helpful in your own job as a teacher why go to a school that has them?
    I have a list of pros and cons.

    To be honest, it is in my top 3 reasons for not choosing the school, despite it being well sought after, with a huge reputation for being an amazing school and extensive waiting lists if you are not in catchment.

    Fair enough. But it plays such a small part of DD1's school day I don't even really give it a second thought. She goes through phases of enjoying the computers and then she likes to break from that and use the books. I like the mix. It works for her. Like I said it's not pushed on the kids, but I think it mainly works because her teacher is amazing and seems to just get what works for each child.

    How much do they cost?
    My daughter uses beestar online text worksheets. Math is free. ELA costs $20 per semester. Science, Social,Vocabulary cost $30 per semester. The online worksheets is an excellent idea and DD like it very much.
