Basically, I called the other school down in Dallas and they said they would see if they could get permission for her to still go there despite being late in the year. But after reading through people's responses, I am thinking that if this charter school continues to not work out, we will switch her to distance learning. She actually already was admitted to EPGY, just not the actual OHS. I am not sure if her admission to EPGY makes her admitted to OHS. We had picked Keystone as it was less expensive and we had read that a lot of people that found OHS too expensive were happy with Keystone. But now I have a friend who is at Connections and happy with it. If it were not for that dern'd teenage girl hormone thing, she would still be homeschooling. But by homeschooling, we were using a distance learning program for high school anyway.

I think we need more time to regroup. The school down in Dallas will likely call us back Monday or Tuesday. So she is staying at the charter until then. If they say no, we will go to the private school fair next month. I have a few ideas. Plus, we are back to thinking about relocating. I like both the districts just south of us and just north of us. DH would like to move out of state though. Moving in to the city will allow us better access to private schools as well as more available to homeschoolers.

I wish my post here were better, but you must know, my 6 yr old is literally running in circles...around me, while I type. So if my post seems a little confused, it is because I FEEL confused!!! I do not know why he runs circles, but he does. LOL..he says he is Luigi!!!

Sounds like you have some options! That's good.

Not sure if anybody asked this -- if she were to skip the Geometry and start at Algebra II or whatever the school has would she only then take 3 years of math? Would she then not have a math course her senior year? Or have to fill in with a college class? Is that something you want? In my high school some kids fit this category (or took only the 3 years of required math and skipped math senior year) and regretted it later. Starting out with College level math after having a year off turned out to be a big headache for some.

As the daughter and sister of 2 high school math teachers I'd say an 8th grade Geometry class would typically not be as rigorous as a high school class, especially not an honors class. And the honors class is where she's most likely to make connections with other kids she will take most honors classes with.

That's really the point... a rigorous school would have Stats, or Math 1050, or something available for her math-wise Sr. year.
