[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]My son who has dyslexia is going to middle school next year. Does any one have children (with our without dyslexia) who have transitioned to middle school? I am asking just to see what kind of peer pressure and school environment he will face. I am most concerned about what the workload is compared to elementary school. Thank you.[/SIZE][/FONT]

I'd say that depends on the schools? My daughter just started middle school this year at one of DISD's magnets. Negative peer pressure has been (so far, knock on wood!) non-existent. The transition has been tough...classes are harder, new kids, further away from home and not with her friends, etc... . I think elementary to middle school can be a tough transition on any kid, even going from their neighborhood elementary to their neighborhood middle school. Is your school working with his dyslexia?

My son transitioned last year without any problems. His middle school starts at 6 grade and notice the school does a pretty good job at keeping them separated. The 6th graders are dropped of at the front of the building while the 7th and 8th are dropped of at the rear. Even during recess they are pretty much kept apart. I'm in the Mesquite ISD if that makes a difference.
