So DS had some issues last year but managed to pass everything with at least a C :) He was VERY stressed and had counseling, meds, etc but pulled it off.
We are headed into is 10th grade year and he is a little ahead with the courses he had last year. We met with his teacher coordintor (we use a homeschool based Charter school) today and he asked about credits/ grades, what is required to graduate, etc. H and decided he wants to either skip his Senior year entirely, or at if he can't pul lthat off, to graduate mid-year.
On one hand, I 'm excited he has a goal. On the other I don't want a repeat ofthe pressure and stress of last year.
Would you let your child purposely load up on classes to graduate early?
This year he has:
- Language arts (Literatre & grammar)
- Algebra 2 and about 4 weeks left from Geometry last year (shouldnt be hard as the first 2-3 weeks of Alg 2 are review so we will double up)
- World History
- Vocational Ed/Public Service
- Driver's ed
The last three - Art, Driver's ed and Service are super easy.
