Breathing a sigh of relief here. Yesterday dd an ds finished taking their MAPS test in math and reading to comply with NH hs laws. Being first year hs'ers, we had a lot riding on the tests. They both did awesome! Dd increased her reading score by 34 points from one year ago! The testing location happened to be their former ps. My impression was that the teacher administering the test seemed surprised that they did so well, considering they were hs'ers. I'm laughing right now at all the teachers there who thought we were crazy to hs. This was just much needed validation for us and our decision to hs. What a great way to end the year, and get excited about next year! :D

Good for all of you! It's sad that PS teachers can't often see that we can be partners, or at least not adversaries. Who cares how or where the kids learn best? Here's hoping you opened their eyes somewhat.
