    Is it ok to change schools in the middle of the school year?

    if a child is struggling in a school is changing the school going to have a good or bad effect on the child?

    I only had to experience this once and it was my youngest. Fortunately, she adjusted without any problems.

    It depends on why they are struggling.  If it has to do with social issues then yes, changing could help.  It gives them a fresh start.  But if they are constantly getting into trouble, then most likely they will look for the same types of friends and trouble at a new school.  It if is low grades then moving is a terrible idea.  They will be trying to play catch up, learn what new teachers expect, and worrying about their social life.  Middle school is a really hard time in a teens life, parents just need to be patient and present.  Make sure they know you care and you will both make it through.

    I have personally been a 'child' that has done this.

    I adjusted well no problems. smile

    I think it depends on the child personally. If they are an introvert, it may be harder.
    It's tough being young.
