Subscribe Don’t forget the alarm! Question from 5th grade daughter’s mom There aren’t many academies around my place. So we are plannng on moving to Mokdong. What if my child doesn’t do well there? Personally I find moving at that age dangerous. Why is that? Because our children should have their best friends by then. They must have created social groups by that age. Schools do way more things than just teaching. Children make friends there. Their relationship with teachers are also crucial. So it would be too tough for the child to move to a new place where everything is already settled. I don’t find it necessary. To give you another tip, middle schools follow absolute evaluation. Korean, English, Math, Social Studies, Science You get A for above 90. This is most important in special high schools. Getting As. If you are planning on sending your child to special high schools, moving is an option. But moving abruptly can be tough for children. So I recommend sending them to academies in the new neighborhood first. For at least 6 months. Children can make friends there. Children spend more time with friends at academies than at school. I hope your question is answered!
