What Im trying to ask is, how do birthdays work with grades?...because it doesnt always match up
Some parents "red shirt" their children or hold them back for a year or even two years for kindergarten to allow their kids to be more matured socially. I know a few tennis players, both boys and girls, in our section repeated the 8th grade to improve their TR ranking. Never foreseeing that my son would have such a big passion for tennis, I had him started his kindergarten before he turned 5 in a Montessori School.
