    Primary school for DD9 is about 20mins if the run is good....which is hardly ever. There have been times where I have not taken her to school until after 9am due to an accident prior to our leaving time.

    Our high school is about 30mins away...same as above. However, DD12 catches the bus and I do not have to drive her in very often. I do sometimes pick her up though.

    We're rural and DD's school is 14km away, takes about 15 minutes each way. No choice as it's the closest school. If we had stayed in Melbourne we would've been 400m from the school gate.

    I went to a private secondary school and I had to catch the train there and back each day. Took about an hour each way I think (there was a walk to/from train station at each end). Didn't seem like a big deal at the time, a lot of my peers did it.

    About 15 mins. Fact is that we don't want to live next to the kids school as we don't like the area and don't want them to move schools for the sake of us saving 15 minutes each day so don't see a problem. Of course if it was around the corner that would be great but it's not and that's life.

    School is under 2km from our house. Probably about 5mins in traffic. We often walk/ride. I would love to live even closer!

    The school we're hoping to send DD to in a few years is right across the road from our house, so it shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to walk from the front door to the gate.

    An hour to an hour and a half, depending on traffic.
    Two- three hours on public transport.
    It sucks.
    But we didn't want to move them after we got custody as DSD only has a year left and DSS three but we will move closer in a year or so.
    H travels that way for work anyway so he drops them, I collect via public transport (on days they don't have activities) or we both collect after activities.

    ETA: we will move closer so we are halfway between the primary school they currently attend and the high school DSD will attend. DD is booked into pre-school out that way too.
