Glad to hear middle school is going well for your daughter.
I've been following this thread as my son also started middle school this year. He's in his third week and I'm amazed at how well it's going. We do need to tweak some of his classes and move him to advanced classes, but I knew that would happen. He wanted to opt out of the advanced classes as he's been in a gifted school since 2nd and had a healthy dose of impostor syndrome so I let him try the non advanced classes. Predictably we need to do some adjusting now that school has started. But he's doing great. I really worried because all his friends from elementary were in the advanced classes he choose not to take. But he's doing well in his classes, keeping organized and on top of assignments, and making friends left and right. Plus he still sees his friends at lunch and in orchestra and band. I'm so relieved it's going well. I'll be honest, I expected it to suck, but so far I like all his teachers and he's thriving.
I'm glad that your daughters experience has also been positive so far.
