The high school placement letter came in today.
Dancer was admitted to her #1 choice for a specialized high school (one ranked in the top 10 in the country, and Eldest's semi-alma mater*);
She was admitted to THE performing arts high school for their dance program;
She was admitted to a superb public high school affiliated with an Ivy League college, where she could take college courses in her junior and senior years.
She will not be going to any of these, because she has chosen to go to a very fine Catholic girls' high school. But it is a fine thing to have such excellent options open to her. And I am very proud of my girl.
* In one of the quirks of life, Eldest is probably on the books as a drop-out because she went to college after her junior year, without graduating.
