Q:

What school in Lake City Florida will be the best school for our son who will be in 6 Grade.

My son will be living with his grandparents in Lake City Florida for a year. Both his parents will be deployed to Iraq during this time. I am looking for a school that will keep him focused and works well with ADHD kids.

Hi there,

Finding a local school can be daunting! I would suggest starting by learning about the school options in Lake City, FL.  Comparing information such as school test scores, student diversity, and student-teacher ratio might be helpful in your school search.

Also, I would suggest contacting the school district directly to see what school is assigned to his grandparents' address.  You might also contact schools directly to learn about the specific special needs resources available.

Good luck!
Kelly

Hi, In addition to the great school advice Kelly provided, I also wanted to share some additional resources that your family might find helpful...

First, an article about how to help your son adjust to the move:

We also have an article about how to turn a parental absence or trip into a learning experience for your child:

And one for "When a Parent Goes to War":

Lastly, I would recommend that you and your child's grandparents review our Special Needs page, which has a variety of articles related to ADHD: http://www.education.com/topic/special-needs/

I wish you and your family well, and thank you for serving our country.
