Peralta (or other schools) for bright, sensitive child
We are lucky enough to have Peralta as our neighborhood school and are hoping our daughter gets a spot there for K next year. That said, we’re wondering how she will do there (or at other OUSD schools). She is bright (e.g., taught herself to read at 3, has been reading chapter books since 4, etc.) and also sensitive with big feelings. She can get overwhelmed in noisy, chaotic environments and can take time to warm up in new situations. She also tends to worry about some things (we think it’s because she spends so much time thinking). She is doing great in her preschool, but we wonder what real school will be like for her — both in terms of whether she’ll be academically challenged and how she’ll be supported emotionally. Any Peralta (or OUSD) parents with similar kids have thoughts? Should we be looking for private schools with better teacher/student ratios?
Thanks in advance!
