Jean in Newcastle Posted March 10, 2012 Share Posted March 10, 2012 I'm trying to think this through so bear with me, please! I know that if ds14 went to our local high school he would be getting easy A's. I know this not because "we're homeschooling, so of course it's true." I know this because I've talked to ds's friends who go to the high school that he would be attending here and I've seen their work. (And no, I wasn't quizzing them but it comes up naturally in conversation.) Ds doesn't want easy A's. He likes the rigor and he likes having to really think. Grading has been the biggest "how to homeschool high school" struggle for me. I think I'm learning some fair but honest ways to grade his work. I don't know what his final 9th grade subject grades will be but I think they will be all A's and B's. I'm wondering - does that matter to colleges? I mean would they look at his transcript with some B's in there but a whole lot of rigor and compare that positively against a transcripts of all As that are a whole lot of fluff? Or will his PSAT/SAT/ACT scores trump all? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
