    Hi Sara,

    Thanks for taking time and responding to me. We are moving from
    Dubai, we moved here from Dallas, Texas on international
    assignment a couple of years back and now moving back to Texas.
    we were really worried that considering the intensity of high
    school, will it be too much for him to join school 6 weeks late
    and if the schools will be willing to take him in Grade 10, as
    after he finished his Grade 9 in Jul here in Dubai, he has not
    been going to school and only taking private tuition at home. Any
    views will be much appreciated.

    Regards
    Kish
