KungFuPanda Posted February 5, 2012 Share Posted February 5, 2012 . . . as in going to school for the first time THIS month? My 9th grader wants to go to High School. She's wanted to for a while and we've put it off. We've given her the go-ahead for 10th grade. Now I'm wondering if NOW might be better. It would get all of the hassle and confusion out of the way this year and let her begin next year (or not) with a real knowledge of what she's in for. I'd rather she decide not to go at all, but that's more of an emotional reaction. Intellectually, I believe she's ready. She wants the full experience which could include theater and cheerleading. In my day, try-outs and auditions happened the year before. As much as I prefer to homeschool, I don't want to set her up for failure. Our neighborhood high school is NOT one of the top ones in our county, but our county is sought after for it's schools, so there are no horrific or dangerous ones in the mix. It's the smallest school at around 1000 students. Also, it's a block from our house, so her attending won't interfere with her brother's homeschooling events. My daughter is bright and funny. She's socially adept, but not remotely afraid of speaking her mind or being different. I THINK she's up for it. I THINK she's ready. I'm wondering if it was a big mistake on my part to not start her at the beginning of the year. What does the hive think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
