difficult child is graduating (barely) from 8th grade at her current school. However, her new school for next year, and we as well, don't believe she is ready for the 9th grade curriculum, so she is going to be going back into the 8th grade at the new school in the fall. She is NOT happy about it at ALL, but we're running out of options. It's been a rough year, grades-wise, and it's so hard to figure out the balance between medications, ability, and effort. She doesn't seem to care one whit about even trying to make decent grades. We don't expect straight A's, but we do feel she's at least capable of C's, but she's barely passing with D's in most subjects. Since she already repeated 1st grade, she is probably going to be the oldest and biggest kid in her class. She is very "developed," but she has the maturity of maybe an 11 year old. I just hope this new school works out, otherwise we're not sure what else to do.
