We moved this past summer (cross country) and the school system/environment is very different in every aspect!! We came from a very religious community where my son attended a small country school (less than 300 kids- k-6th) to one that is k-5 and over 800 kids. The expectations are greater now and the communication with teachers is less and difficult. My son has gone from an average of b's... to mostly d's, c's and a couple f's and the kicker is I never heard a thing from the teachers until I got the report card!! He is very capable of the work but has an attention problem that his previous school tested and adapted a learning plan for him. His new school dropped him after "re evaluating" him- (he was ONE point from qualifying). There is still half a year for him to turn things around but I do not see this happening where he is. I have had meetings with school staff and I am sick of fighting with them- short of me sitting in his class all day. The prinipal sucks so I don't think a teacher switch would be a good idea.
Am I over reacting? Or not doing enough? Should I switch schools?
