    Default Best type of school for an introverted child?

    My son starts prep in 2014, and I need to start making inquiries about schools.

    We have concluded he is an introvert, and I worry he might not fit in well in a mainstream school.

    Does anybody have experience with an introverted child and schooling?

    We are lucky to have a good range of schools close by (I'm not keen on travelling far), being:

    - nice state school (5 minute walk)

    - montessori (within 5 kms)

    - independent school (Brisbane Independent School) (within 5 kms)

    - other private religious schools within 3 - 10km (but I am an atheist, and don't really like strict rules or uniforms etc, so not keen)

    I am obviously attracted to the state school as it's close and free, but I was also thinking about the independent school, assuming I haven't left it too late to enrol.

    Does anybody have insights they would be willing to share?
