Re: What is a "Conference des Maitres"? Round #2 Contesting School Placement

Great news!

I go back to my previous suggestion because now the objective is to have her stay in VSB.

Start NOW with some extra one-on-one tutoring in French (especially writing). It is a lot easier to build this up over a few months rather than panic when her grades come back and you realize that her French is holding her back.

Good luck.

Congratulations ... to you scarsdale, as a parent, as well as to your daughter!

From some of your comments in this thread (and the related thread, Contesting School Placement), I've realized there are many things about the school system here that I do not entirely understand. The cultural differences make it difficult for me to interact with the teachers at times and it's a bit frustrating for all of us.

English Forum is awesome.
Totally agree .... both counts!!
