You will have noticed that home schooled kids are over-represented among the winners of spelling bees, math competitions, chess tournaments, music competitions, and the like. They aren't smarter or more talented. They are better educated.
That's Better Educated. Period.

Home schooling is a popular subject. A web search produced 453-million hits. A YouTube search produced a paltry 38-million. My local library has dozens of books on home schooling.
I totally recommend home schooling if you can possibly manage it. For your son's and daughter's sakes, give them the education the government run schools can't. (Actually, they can. It's just that they won't. It's too much work.) If you think I'm biased against public schools, you're right. Read this:

If you can't manage home schooling, then get your boy hooked up with books from here:

If you're worried about them not developing athletic skills or socializing, then stick them in little league or soccer or something. They will excel - if you home coach them! (My personal choice is to put them in martial arts, like judo. Let's have them learn a life skill as opposed to a game.)
