Here is a little into about me. (It may help you answer my questions)
I'm Russian Jew. I do believe but in my own way. ( but most of the people would probably call me non religious ) My son in 4th grade elementary public school. Next year he will be going to mid school and that's what I afraid of. ( living in NYC and all ) As an option I'm considering sending him to yeshiva. But there are a few considerations.
- Financially ( it seems to be more complicated as it seems you need to pay for it ? )
- Level of Education ( will he be able to compete when he gets out into real life? )
- First shock for kid and then possible future conflict as family not as religious
