Applying to a Magnet High School. (10 points)?





  •   
I have two questions about applying to Thomas Jefferson High School in Fairfax Virginia. It is a STEM high school (that means that it focuses on Math, Science, Tech, and Engineering.) I'm in 7th grade. My teacher, told me that TJHS doesn't care if you put anything on the application form not relating to STEM subjects. (Therefore, it wouldn't help me to participate in the Spelling BEE, etc.) Also, do you think I have a decent chance of making it to TJHS? -I'm in my school's highest possible math and language arts extended classes. (Algebra 1)-I have a 4.00 GPA in Algebra 1, and a near perfect 4.00 in all other core subjects. The same goes for my 6th grade year.-I got all perfect 600 scores in 6th grade.-I got all pass advanced in the 7th grade.-I'm in NJHS.I'm was in my school robotics last year. This, year I was also in my school robotics, and we qualified for and attended the World VEX Championship. (I'm a programmer.)-I did fairly well on the Continental Math League last year, and am currently in first place this year.-I did the Science Fair this year, and last year, and received Honorable Mention.-I won best in Pre-Algebra, Language, and Social Studies last year.-I took the Test Nova in 2nd grade and received top 93% overall, and top 99% in math.-I took math courses in Chinese Saturday school for several years.-I am in SIGNET.-I have an IQ of 141.-I am on very good terms with my teachers.-I took the practice TJ test in 6th grade and got 90% correct.-I do Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre - Calculus, and Calculus textbooks in my spare time.-I am constantly told that I am good a writing essays, and am a very convincing writer.-I received a 12.9 math grade level, on STAR math test, in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.I really want to go to TJHS, and am willing to put in the long, several hour commute. Please answer my question if you can. If you have no idea wht I'm talking about, please don't troll, and move on.

    This is very impressive! I would put everything that you can o your academic achievements on this application. I think you will make it in no problem. You seem very bright and you will go far in life.

    There is nothing to do and not much to say about ones application to Thomas Jefferson High School in Fairfax, Virginia. I think the great record that you have in the elementary school. I do not doubt at all that you will be admitted to that high school if you want to go there.I think you will be admitted. If I were your mother or your father, I would be worried about the time that they would have to take to drive four hours every day to get you to that high school. That is a lot to ask of your parents because that is twenty hours a week taken out of ones family life. It is over one-half of a work week where your parents are contributing to keeping your home and working at a job.. It is also taking time away from your homework.Please if you can for yourself and your parents and the rest of your family, consider going to the high school in your school district that is closer. Then all that time commuting something over a hundred miles a day could be devoted to the health and well-being of your family. I know you will do well wherever you go to high school. If you chose a high school closer to your home, no one would have to drive so much to allow you to go to school. Think about this proposal and talk it over with your parents. Good luck.
