Hello Nancy and the whole group,
I can't say how happy I am on finding this forum, it feels like a candle in a dark room!!!
We live in NY, so Miami is something totally new. We still have one year, but our son has ADD (IEP & 504 accommodations), so it's a big challenging for him to go to High School, but also to go to a different state, without friends and without anything that he always lived with...
We are only seeing the positive side (Weather, work, friends, etc), but he is full of uncertainty and anxiety, so we really want to find a good school for him. We need a place that will have a special program for kids with learning disabilities, because we know that the process of application is very competitive and stressful. I'm afraid that he will not be able to be accepted in a good High School...
Anyway, I would love to hear from you in regards of these kind of schools. Is there a list of these types of schools that I could have access? I know that there are many magnet programs in the public school system, but all the ones that he liked are with science as major. He is the best student in science of his school, but he hates math, so he is very bad... The programs are together (Science, Math and Technology), it seems that you have to have a high GPA & pass in a test, etc... I have no idea how to start.
Any guidance from you or from anybody with similar situation would be wonderful!!!
Thanks a lot and God bless you,
