Question

Mr. O'Conner,
One more question regarding the private school mid-year grade change. Administrators tell us if they include our child in class ranking with the 5pt scale applied (in-house) to college courses taken this year(senior) it will be unfair to the kids sitting at 2,3 and 5 with the 5pt applied to their ap course(junior). Our child would move from 4th to sharing 1st. Our child has been alone in 1st since freshman year. In what way would this be unfair to 2,3 and 5? Again, to us it seems the mid-year change gave advantage.
Thank you.

I do not know why one approach would be considered fair or unfair to your child or the other
students. I do know that if you want your child to have the best chance to be valedictorian you
should take them out of the private school and put them in the high school with the weakest
senior class within reasonable driving distance.
