DS is hating high school. He failed their geometry readiness test because he doesnt test well. He only missed it by a few percentage points, 3 I think he said, and they refused to work with him. I asked if he could review and retake it in a week and they denied him.
The classes are SS boring and he has to get up at 6am and then of course, be in bed by 9pm. He doesn't have time to hang out and do the things HE wants to do.
I really had to fight and bend over backward to get him into the high school. I spent several months trying to talk him out of it and encouraging him to stay in the Charter school we have been using.In the end, I enrolled him to make him happy and now that he's there...he hates it.
So now... what do I do? I know my family (ugg...) and even DH... were happy that he was going back to public school but he is MISERABLE. I told DS that HE needs to talk to his dad and tell him why he wants to change back and explain it. He can NOT go back into the same high school if I remove him. this is his one nad only chance there and our "zone" school is HORRIBLE. I will NOT allow him to go there.
We will not even go into how awful it is for me - to get up and drive him 6 miles each way to school and back...that's 24 miles a day = 1 gallon of gas per day is over $80 in gas a month. Then $10 a week in lunch money.
It takes me over an hour to pick him up in the afternoons. I have to get there about 30 min before the bell rings to get a half-way decent (aka less than a 1/4 mile away) parking spot, and then it takes 15 minutes to get out of the area due to traffic!
I want him to go back to the Charter school, DS wants to, now I have to get DH on the same page. my parents will deal with whatever we choose. My Dad was even telling me today how he knows DS is really not happy in high school.
