SCHOOL RANKING, GRADES AND YOUR CHILD

I got a question.
 I was chit chatting with another parent while my daughter played with one of her many friends in the neighborhood. The mom over heard my child telling her friend that she goes to “school B”, mom cautiously and kindly asks me if I looked at the “grade” for the school, and I’m like …”yes”.

She kindly informs me that several of the kids in the area went to that school at some point and some were a grade behind when transferred to a public school (School B, Charter school).

In my mind, not all parents do what they need to do when their child comes home with homework, and some do not feel the need to do extra which can easily affect how your child does in school. The of course there is the issue with the child’s environment that can easily affect focus.

We here in the P. family household put in work with our kids and spend mucho time doing the basics and then some to prep our kids. NO fault to those that are not..for whatever reason, but I feel that is one of the many reason a school grade can be impacted. Of course there are other issues like adminstration, transitional teachers that come with the active miltary family memebers and etc.

So I want to ask, you is the school grade/score that important to you. I mean School B is .5 below School A (the school mom was referring to). Grades fluctuate based on economy and other major factors. Whats your thoughts??
