Bit late in the day for coffee at this point, although I did just enjoy a glass of soda.
Yesterday I finally got the application turned in for my son to be considered for enrollment to Sonoron Science & Math Academy next year (in which he will enter High School. The main issue look to be his math skills. I was told the school does not offer Algebra and so it is imperative that he pass his algebra course this year. The fact that he is currently receiving a failing grade in that class doesn’t bode well, but it is early in the year so there is some hope he’ll squeak by at least.
I also stopped by to check another school called Rose Academy. I found out that I cannot submit an application until he actually graduates 8th grade. The application for the 16-17 year begins in June of 2016 (the school year begins in august). Rose Academy is an independent study type school. Basically you are in class 4 hours a day (friday’s being optional) and then do the remainder of the class work, online, at home.
There is also another school, a boarding school, that caters specifically to high-functioning Autistic kids (my son has low level autism, technically aspergers). A big problem is that this school is showing as having a less than good reviews, however we do not know why this is so. I also want to know more about the academics of the school as well as it’s (for lack of better words) mainstreaming & socialization capabilities. I want to know how equipped are the kids, who graduate, in being prepared to handle life after graduation and function in a normally functioning world.
Tuesday was spent pretty much running around with the hubby running errands and then going to a Mary Kay training meeting (as I wrote about in an earlier blogpost).
So that’s how my week went. Make sure to check out my other blogs, which I will be posting to shortly.
