I did assume that any school that sounds as amazing as this one would have been accredited by the State of Indiana. I have lived in Indiana for 52 years and this is the first time that I have heard of ISI. I will rephrase. "I am concerned as to why ANY SCHOOL would allow someone with perfect grades to repeat 8th grade." This is not a personal attack on this young man or his family. It does bother me that this takes place in Indiana. I might understand being so intelligent that you might have to move on to the next level, but I do not understand going back and repeating a grade, be it at a prestigious school, regular private school or a public school. Again not a personal attack on this young man or his family. Just an opinion on a discussion board.
