Just my opinion -- my focus would be in the present. All we've got is now - so what's good for them now? Things always change on a dime. If you plan for a future that isn't here yet, you could be disappointed because of changes that you were unable to anticipate. Doing what's best for them now takes care of now and you never know, another fantastic option could pop up out of nowhere down the road. I understand your dilemma, and your desire to cover all of your bases, but the future really does take care of itself somehow...just my philosophy.

I agree with Ethansmom - look at keeping your youngest safest for the next 5 yrs. You have 2 years to deal with your eldests anxiety and maybe if she sees her sister is in a supportive environment over this time these anxieties may improve.

As allergies become more common and better understood over the next 5 yrs (we can hope anyway) the middle school may also have to change and improve over this time so that by the time she gets there, it might be a completely different environment.

Son Ethan: 1yr old dairy anaphylaxis

I agree that the immediate future should be the focus. Administrations change as do boundaries. Perhaps some vocal parents will effect a change before you have to cross that bridge.
Perhaps the next few years will alleviate some anxiety and your girls will have better/different coping skills by the time they enter middle school.
You may even be able to send them to the other school even if it isn't the normal way to go.
Good luck with the move! :)
