Stillwood Posted July 28, 2012 Share Posted July 28, 2012 My son had a late start in school (6.5 years, was reading by 7). Obviously, he's had plenty of time to catch up and is basically lazy when it comes to school. He does the bare minimum. He placed 8.6 grade level 57 percentile in 'Test Point' from Christian Liberty Press. He also has not finished pre-algebra. Normally, I wouldn't worry if we continued to home school. But we need to put him in school-long story. He is 15 (January birthday along with his late start). I'd like him to be in 9th grade. Will he do ok in 9th grade? I don't think he'll work hard enough for College Prep. courses. Anyone know what the school (public) will/can do for him? I've emailed the Public high school and mentioned he needs to take or finish pre-algebra and they wrote back that 9th grade students start with Algebra 1. I can't believe that ALL highschool kids in Florida start high school with Algebra 1... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
