Also, where do you work? Can you put them in a school closer to you work rather than at home? Honestly, homeschooling is a costly and time consuming job, you have to be 100% committed to it in every way, so you really have to consider if it is something you really want to do, dont do it unless you are 100% committeed to it.
Sorry about the mistakes, my phome doesnt like bubhub!

I'm a bit confused - you first said the local school was the worst in the state, then said its great and that's why it's so crowded and you can't get in?
You pretty much have to take what you can get right now it seems. Put in official applications everywhere, waitlist at the private school, and see what offers you get, then make your decision from there.

I'd wait list for the local private schools and just do the drive to nearest who will take you until then. I did 1.5 years driving DD 40 mins+ to school, so 4 trips a day of 40 mins for me. It sucked but I knew there was an end in sight.

Just to clarify for people reading this thread, if you are zoned for a school then a cps doesn't exist. If you are not zoned for it then you may be told that they are capped. You can not be turned away from your locally zoned school.

If the local zoned school has to take your kids Op, no matter what, then perhaps that's what you should do until a place comes up at a more desirable school. As someone else suggested, you could get a tutor or do some tutoring yourself with your kids after school if you think they need it.
I don't know that i'd rush to quit work and homeschool, especially a gifted child, unless I had a particular specialised set of skills that would lend themselves to teaching. I don't know, maybe you have those skills. I don't!

There are cases of schools having to redistribute classes due to high mid-year enrollments, and employing contract teachers in the middle of the school year, which is only possible when the teacher:student ratio is exceeded. Until then, class sizes keep swelling. It can be very challenging and a strain on resources.
