USually a 14 year old is put into the 9th grade which is the Freshman, first year of High School. Unless, he’s been left back or is way behind in his work ability then he can be placed in a Middle School in either the grade 8 or 7, but not any lower than either of those two.

New York City has 5 boros, so I’m not sure if you’re meaning the boro of Manhattan or any one of the other 4 boros. If he wants to specialize in any one or two subject areas, then if I was you and him, I’d do research on the computer and google search for High Schools in N.Y.C. and find out which of them offer what he’s looking to study and learn about. (I recommend that you do a computer search on High Schools no matter what you’re looking for and then you’ll have a whole bunch of choices to pick from.)

You said something to do with average work, except I didn’t fully understand what you meant by that term in this instance.

Are you referring to him getting average work or him needing average work? Anyway, make sure that if he’s on an average level within his grade’s work, then the teachers and guidance counselors understand this and abide by it. If he only has average or below average capabilities then as his parent, I wouldn’t worry so much about him getting into a specialized school. Your focus point should rather be on his improving within his goals he most likely will accomplish within the school year 2007-2008. A lot of times a student who is “average” can be avg. in one or two subjects and above average in all other areas.

As the incoming school that will be accepting your son’s application for enrollment, they will have to know his past educational background as well as what country he’s migrating from and his primary language. If he is already fluent in English then that is really great, he’ll be 2 steps ahead of other immiigrants with that knowledge alone.

I’d appreciate it if you would e-mail me with some more questions regarding your son’s school.

regrettably kids having kids are traditional. And now a days with the best way of the arena, 14 could be very ‘grown’ in a way. I am certain that this 14yr historical boy does not seem like what 14 did 20 and even 10 years in the past. My little sis is 12 and she or he is formed how i used to be formed whilst i used to be sixteen. Sex is far and wide and with out correct council from residence and with out maintaining your kids busy, they become doing what ever occur and what ever is smart. Its ‘traditional’ if that’s what you wish to name it, to peer children pushing strollers that don’t seem to be their siblings. Where i’m from a sixteen yr historical woman would simply have two children. So unhappy certainly.

It really depends on what part of the city you’re in and how much you’re willing to pay for high school.

Research online–and not Yahoo! answers–look at school websites, tuition prices, and unless it’s necessary cost-wise don’t try the public schools (they suck).
