I have a super work ethic. Heiner doesn't...Shannon doesn't either. We have had to push her all the way though primary school and often it's been a battle. It's really not been easy. I just cant imagine how had it'd be to push her though this too.

But Heiner thinks it's different in the Real school. He thinks it's more hands-on and doing more stuff yourself so he thinks that will motivate her. In the Haup school the kids never got to do any science experiments or build things. I did in my school.

I just dont know...This is one of the biggest decisions we're going to make for her because it really will have an influence on the rest of her life and I really dont want to choose.
Sounds difficult. On one hand pushing her might overwhelm her. I know you have had difficulties getting her to do her work already. On the other hand the other school sounds like a better education for her.
