Class placement question
I am a very long time lurker (I have one who’s a junior and one incoming sophomore) and kind of considered myself an old hat at the boarding school thing. My older one was the kind of kid who did everything herself but the younger one needs more parental involvement and it’s giving me pause. His teacher recommended algebra 2 honors and he was placed in a regular section (this is his favorite subject and he was the top math student at his previous but much smaller school). Wondering how hard to push to get him moved. If he is bored it will NOT lead to good things. I see a lot of advice on here about schools knowing what they’re doing and to trust the process. But this I think they got wrong. Over my years as a boarding school mom I have seen many examples of parents trusting the process and their kids getting mucked up because of a lack of parental intervention. I’ve also seen a lot of over the top parents though....hence the pause.29 replies
