Hi, everyone. I have just joined the forum and would like to ask for help with my son's split decision whether to remain at Bronx Science with 87 average gpa going Sophomore this Fall or to transfer to his zone school at Francis Lewis High where their JROTC program is top notch and grades are far more forgiving, not to mention that its weighted there and not in Bronx Sci. He hopes that a combination of JROTC, grades in the upper 90's, and outstanding SAT scores will better situate himself for serv acad. Bronx Sci valedictorians are only in the range of 95gpa while zone school can go up to 105. He wants to move to his zone school to better his chances to service acad. with higher gpa. I guess my quetion is whether it is better to stay in Bronx Sci--school known for stiff compet. with other brightest kids in the country , 1400 average SAT, with numerous kids into ivy leagues--or to move to Fancis Lewis zone school with 99% of kids who did not make to NYC Specialized High exam like Bronx Sci but with one of the best JROTC program in the nation with about 10 kids making it to serv acad evey year. My son also is in the wrestling team with silver metal in the nyc jv tournament last year and in the track team. He loves and trives on sports. He broke his jr. high physical test 3 years back to back in his intermediate school and 2nd in all grade physical in Bronx as Freshmen. Please help.
