My daughter got accepted to apply to a magnet program in a school far from where we live. She's been in the gifted program since second grade...and to say the least is NOT motivated. she hates it and wanted to let it expire and not return to the program in middle school next year (her first year of middle school, she's 11). (She also was accepted to 3 MEGSSS programs in 3 different shcool which she decided she doesn't want to do.) She wants to go to this magnet program because one other girl (her best friend) might be going... but I just think she'll hate it.
1.What are the real advantages? Education..college resume?
2.Is it better to get C's in a magnet program, or A's in an a.p. class or honor classes?
3.If you child is going;is he/she motivated? Do they like it? Would you make this choice again? Is it worth the gripe, if you get any?
