    What do you mean supposed to be? Are you referring to her age? What about academics?

    Basically you need to meet with her guidance counselor and discuss what she can do academically to get back to the right age track. And I would do it now because there may be things she could do over this summer and the next to make up the courses she needs to take.

    If she was "held" back she is in the grade she is suppose to be. if she is ready to skip a grade, she will have studied on her own and learned the things this year that not only what a 7th grader should know but you at home will also be teaching her things that the 8th graders study.

    In her 7th grade classes she will be making straight A's. And at the end of the year tests, if that is the CAT or a CRCT or what ever they do in your area, she would have aced it also.

    So if she is that good in school, you can ask the school to give her the 8th grade CAT or other test to show she knows what a 8th grader would know.

    Pure age means nothing, many people are held back because they fail ( don't pass) a grade.

    So does she have near perfect grades ? And have you talked to the school counselor about it?
