What counts as high school here?

Recommended Posts

In Aus HS starts in grade 7 or 8 depending on the school.  I’m looking ahead and starting to think about grade 9 for oldest next year and realised we’re coming out the other end of the k-8 board.  I’m also having a minor freak out.  Homeschooling littles is one thing but these next years. 😬.

Here's the planning thread for those with 9th graders next year: "Anyone Planning for 9th grade 2020-2021?" so you can see what others are doing.

But in answer to your question:
Do you mean what grades are the high school years for the U.S.? That would be grades 9-12.

Or do you mean what grades for participating on the WTM high school board? You don't have to have any kids anywhere near those grades and participate on the high school (and the college!) board. Great stuff on these "big kid" boards, whether you're even homeschooling or not. 😄 

ome on in... the water's fine! 😄 And welcome to the "big board" 😉 

You might want to start "dipping a toe" in by reading some of the past threads linked in the big pinned thread "High School Motherlode #1". Page 1 has a lot of great "getting started" types of threads Here are some of those threads to get you started:
