Hey everyone, I am a 10th grader in highschool. I am a straight A student. I have had straight As through out my middle and highschool years. I am looking to go to a big college and hopefully work hard and be successfull in life. However, this year, my 10th grade year, I was badly influenced by a friend and ended up doing something that got be suspended from school the last week. And my school dosen't let me make up the missed grades. Right now, I have all Bs in each class and I believe my average for the year is lower B or middle B range. (3.2-3.6) However, this is not how me or my family planned or thought I would end up doing and being in this situation. So, we are wondering what we can do to make this situation least disastrous as possible. I am definitley transferring to another school next year, but my question is, should i repeat the 10th grade to protect and retain an all A average? Will the B grades still be there if I repeat the 10th grade and get all As? My grades and future are very important to me and my family, so this is the reason we would like to repeat the grade to maintain an all As position. So please help. We are thinking maybe homeschooling. Then maybe I could catch up and try to finish 2 grades in one school years time. I am very smart but just made a bad desicion and got influenced by a friend. Please help. Will transferring and reapeating the 10th grade wipe out the previous B average and replace with my new hopful A average? What will be the pros and cons of repeating the grade? What will happen if I switch schools and repeat the 10th grade? We are really lost and could use any guidance or help or suggestions. Please also reccommed anything you think would be better, or any better plan. Thank you for your time. By the way, my school is almost over so extra credit or help won't be that effective.
If you are wondering about any additional details or info, please ask and I will give ASAP.
