The math may bring the overall score up. And there are some great middle schools that don't admit based on a score cut-off. [ Reply | More ]

I think they will because their visits with DH aren't including the dc. Once it becomes a package deal, DH alone will probably insist that she be included. (He should be already but I don't know the dynamic he has with his parents, so....). Meanwhile, she gets a nice spa visit or goes to a relatively close city for the week-end; checks out some museum exhibits.. whatever her heart desires. [ Reply | More ]
