DC is in 8th grade at a very challenging public school. Loves it, but grades are less than spectacular. Don't have report cards yet but am expecting to see a lot of B/B+...maybe one or two A-.
The question is whether to apply out for next year. Assuming public is a lottery and maybe they will offer the SHSAT online...applying would be easy enough. DC REALLY doesn't want to leave current school (have already asked) but I'm honestly concerned about whether she can handle it. It's only going to get harder.
Then again, maybe things will get better post-Covid, when she can actually go to classes and socialize and generally have a more normal school experience?
It's so hard to separate the current circumstances from DC's abilities.
