High School Math with Dyscalculia - Tilden Prep?
Our 8th grader has learning differences that primarily impact their ability to grasp and retain math concepts. Our child currently attends a small independent middle school where they receive individualized support and accommodations (in addition to outside tutoring). We are very concerned about the transition to high school, as our child's challenges with math are quite profound. They want to attend a large high school that offers sports, music, drama, and clubs, etc. We are considering public as well as a couple of Catholic high schools, as these schools offer the overall high school experience our child is looking for. In an ideal world, they would be able to learn math outside of their regular high school - perhaps 1:1 through an accredited program like Tilden Prep. As I have researched this option, however, it seems that schools generally do not permit students to take "core classes" for credit outside of their regular school.
I have seen BPN posts that mention students having taken high school math at Tilden Prep, and I am hoping to hear from families that have successfully navigated this (or a similarly creative approach to getting through high school math). Which high schools have allowed this?
I would also be interested in hearing how high school has been for kids who thrive in most academic subjects, but who have profound challenges with math.
