Hi all

Please advise if it is advisable to put the younger boy in the elder school. They are of 1 yr differences.

Thanks & regards
Valerie

By the time kids get to 12yo, their individual personalities and abilities will be seen more clearly, so I don't think they should automatically follow an older sibling. What's more important is to choose the school based on the individual rather than have them together. I would probably think of separating them if one is much more outstanding than the other (to avoid comparisons) or if they don't get along well (to avoid conflicts).

I agree with slmkhoo.

My 3 cousin (3 brothers) went to the same sec sch.
The 2nd bro is very outstanding. By the time, the younger bro went to the same sec sch. Everyone call him, so and so bro instead of his name.
