Try to first think objectively about both the pros and cons for your son more so than a legal battle to be won or lost against the other parent.
School choice is one of the most important battles when it comes to custody. If the child goes to the school in your district, it is very difficult for the other parent to move and drag the child with them, because you can always argue status quo and how they have friends in school.

If the kids don't go to school in your district, and the other parent moves, then the kid is switching schools regardless so your status quo argument becomes substantially weaker.

Also, if mom teaches at that school you can easily have a situation where most of the professionals who work with your child are aligned against you.

If family law was fair, you could consider what was best for the kids. However, as father, you can't willingly give up custody-battle advantages or you risk losing your kids. School choice is a massive custody advantage. To give it up for some ethereal "might be better for the kid" reason would be pure folly.

Fathers who don't think about the legal battle to be won or lost against the other parent are the type of fathers that lose legal battles.

As a father, it is not enough to be better than the mother. You have to sparkle. Giving up home school advantage is a great way to lose that sparkle.
