    Some offer it part way through primary. My sons is from prep. Are you going from prep?

    I'd love to hear how other parents like it for their kids. To be honest I didn't really focus on it for my girls and I'm a bit sorry. But their girls school is incorporating lots of aspects.

    I still remember when they reopened Fitzroy high and it offered IB for year 11 and 12 I kept thinking it was short for irritable bowel!

    One of our local primary schools is starting to adopt this philosophy as well. I wouldn't be surprised if over the next decade this would be full integrated into all main****** education. I've also heard that this is creeping into high school education as well.

    Because of this progressive way of teaching/learning, we are considering moving to another catchment area so we can get the benefit of this open learning philosophy without having to pay for it #winning !!

    I think only 8 in Sydney is low - I've noticed in the USA and New Zealand it's primarily public schools that do it - I wonder if Australian public schools are looking into it?

    There are more in SA than nsw. Interesting given population numbers.
