Somehow middle school disappeared on me.
I’m still trying to get used to not calling the elementary school when my kiddo is sick, how in the world am I doing high school enrollment?
She did get into the high school that she wanted to, which is both good and bad. Good because its one of the best schools in the state, but bad because its going to be a lot tougher than the regular, huge public high school she would have gone to.
But if she keeps things as she’s set up now, she’ll graduate with a magnet certificate in both engineering and biomed. A massive advantage…
But one that means a lot of math and science classes, with their homework… so… we will see.
My guess would be that she will eventually decide to do either the engineering or the biomed but not both after she sees how freshman year goes… but, its her choice… so if she wants to try both, she might as well go for it and change her mind later rather than to be pushed into one and later egret not having given the other a shot.
But… man… the past few years have snuck past in all the battles of the day to day life.
How in the world are we only 4 years from the end?
Granted, I expect she will likely continue past high school… but still…
It seems like just yesterday we were struggling through forcing motivation on a reluctant third grader and wondering if we were even going to make it past elementary school with adhd.
I think the challenge of this school is going to be good though… its going to be somewhere that she can’t just coast past. Right now, she knows that she’s smart enough that even if she doesn’t do the homework at all, she can still ace the tests, and the average of the two gets her past it.
But that’s not going to cut it in a science and technology focused school. (It also shares a campus with fine art and law… making for an interesting combination of available electives..)
We aren’t to the end yet…
But I guess this is the first time that I can say that I’ve had a glimpse that it isn’t as much left as it seems.
