[ - ] 5th grade DD has been having a hard time this year, socially. At lunch each class has 2 tables, 1 for boys and 1 for girls. A group of mean girls in DD's class have been bullying her and telling her "seat is take " when she tries to sit down. I called the teacher about this, and apparently she has decided to assign seats. The mean girls said to dd today, "we know your mom called and complained about us and that's why we all have assigned seats now. You are a loser." Ugh I feel like we can't win :( 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't think you did anything wrong by calling the teacher, but I think the teacher handled it poorly.

op-its a hard decision. My dd is very social - in that has many circles of friends in many places - I feel like she would do well in a place where there is larger and more diverse pool of kids. I also think she needs to learn to compete a bit more. At the same time - her grades are not stellar - even though she is extremely smart. Being a B student in a top flight school district means you are in classes with lost of really not great kids. Means maybe she is in honors, not AP classes, and posisbly a few basic classes - which usually have some rough kids as well. its confusing. [ Reply | More ]

op- do you think switching her to a very good but very competitive public local school would be a disadvantage. Her school is very pricey and I feel is she is not getting A's that maybe it is just as well to put her in public and save $$ for college and other programs that will help her to get into college. Do you think a good public where there are many top kids will be a bad move or not? [ Reply | More ]

pp - That's interesting. I cannot say for certain, but I know that's the mindset that I have encountered and can't say how it plays out long term. When you are performing in the 3.0-3.5gpa range, you are going to need a VERY good reason why - illness, dying parent.... Honestly, if she cannot perform above a 3.5 in her current school, it seems unlikely that she would be able to do so at a good public high school. I'm not trying to be a dick, but there are a lot of private school kids who think that public school is a walk in the park and feel that their 3.0 translates to a 4.0 in public. Not so. I started at a very competitive public school program for the gifted before transferring to private school. I found the two comparable. I also don't know how well extracurriculars will help her get into college. I had a rather impressive list of real achievements - founded the young democrats chapter for my county, organized some big fundraisers, volunteered on state and national campaigns, 2nd chair violist for our local youth philharmonic (nationally ranked), merit scholar, extensive research & volunteering at a mental health clinic....I really don't think any of that mattered as much as my GPA and SAT scores. Some schools were willing to look past my middling GPA - the ivies seemed most generous - but for others it was a deal breaker. Work on building up that GPA. [ Reply | More ]

University of Michigan is super competitive, more so than BU, NYU, American, etc. I suspect she's in that category, or top liberal arts schools. [ Reply | More ]

This sounds like my dd, but with art instead of music. Goes to a very small private with good reputation (not NYC). We are meeting with advisor on Monday to go over their recommendations, I am so curious to see what they will say. [ Reply | More ]

op-what schools are you interested in her attending? Was she ever an A student? Mine was - until 7th..its extremely frustrating. We also skipped her - as per suggestion of school and now I am thinking maybe pull her and retain her a year before starting HS next year (she is now in 8th and suppose to be in 7th) - to have her maybe redo year and mature a bit.

it was over 20 years ago but for me, it was a small liberal arts college. My list included Brown, Vassar, Skidmore, NYU, Barnard and Columbia. Lots of girls I went to school with ended up at these as well. [ Reply | More ]
