My son has attended 2 High Schools. 9th-10th in Singapore and 11th in Texas. Here's his problem. The Singapore school was extremely challenging, but did not offer an Honors Level course for practically every class, like they do at his Texas school. (In fact the on level courses in Singapore would blow away the honors courses here.) Therefore the grades then get factored into the Texas GPA as On Level, and his GPA is deflated, not adequately reflecting his success in relation to his peers. What was a top 10% rank at highly acclaimed international school (though no ranking is ever released from that school) has turned into a 21% rank here. The school district will not give him a "Texas Only" GPA and rank. So he's got two completely different GPAs, ranks, and transcripts that have merged into something that is not so hot. His unweighted GPA is 3.85, weighted is 3.98, SAT 770M and 600V, and he's got all the other good things in his resume..Eagle Scout, Chinese Immersion (6 weeks trekking and learning Chinese in China), NHS, Varisty Football, strange and unusual service projects in far away lands, etc etc. yada yada yada Here's the question: Does he write a letter pointing out the fact that he has 2 high schools merging (or should I say crashing) into 1 rank...should he ask his counselor to write the letter? Or should he say nothing??
