Hi Every one, I need advise for my Son who finished grade 9th in June this year however as we are in the middle of international relocation, he has not attended his 10th grade this year. We will be moving to Houston by 15th of Sept and by that he would have mised almost 7 weeks of 10 grade school. He has been always ahead of his grade level in Maths and Science however we are a bit worried that he has lost out too much and are thinking of placing him in 9th grade again. Can you please advise me if this is a wise move or will it have impact on his colleague admissions as he would have taken a year longer. Thank you very for you help on this.

Regards

Kish
