35. Holy Shit is right.
There is no way a public school voucher will get a kid into that school. Even if they "scholarshipped" a few on the voucher, it wouldn't be make a dent into the number of learning disabled, ADHD, etc. kids that might want to spend their vouchers on a good school designed to serve them.

I'm betting you'll find things cheaper at small church schools that deliver a religion-based curriculum.

I'm curious about something else. State by state, and across the nation-
how many secular private schools vs religious schools? I've seen a huge range in quality in private religious schools, from the attic to the basement. How many offer comparable academic quality (not that what defines quality is agreed upon, lol) to a public school? Finally, what separates the priciest from the mid-level from the cheapest, in terms of program and academics?
