And I'll call the ASL school tomorrow. That's the school with the most chance of having a seat... but they also have the least good academics. (This is not terribly surprising. My guess, without asking, is they have the same problem I'm told a lot of schools for the Deaf do - they end up with kids in the middle school and higher whose parents have finally given up on English-only, and now the school has to play catch-up.) If she went there, we'd be doing a lot of school afterschool and weekends. From my perspective, it hardly seems worth it, but I'm not Eva.

Anyway, the important thing is they take hearing students from throughout the city, even those without Deaf siblings or parents, though their priority of course is Deaf students and their siblings.

How is Ana liking high school?

Hard to say. She said the orientation rocked, she may or may not have made a friend (reports vary), her math teacher treats them like they're five, she likes her French teacher, and she's annoyed that English is called "Appreciating Literature" instead of "English" or "Language Arts".

So there you have it!
