how is school going for those with kids there?
Don't you have a "non-applicable" or somewhat similiar on the report cards for things they have not gotten to yet?
Was he in gifted classes in elementary and middle school (not counting this year of AP classes)?
My kids' day care does evaluations the same way. A 3 means they mastered a skill, a 2 means they are making good progress, and a 1 means they are a beginner. The goal is that they get a 3 in all the skills on the list before they transition to the next class. So, when we changed day cares, differences in the order in which the day cares taught things meant DS was ahead of his class in some things, and behind in others. But even the things he was ahead on, he received a 2, because he had not yet mastered the skill (knew 20/26 letter sounds, but had to know all 26 to get the 3). it took us awhile to realize which things he was at a 1 with because the class had just started, and which we needed to help him catch up on.
The Girl is a freshman (ACK!). However, in our district the freshmen are in the junior high. I love that!
