Is it normal for kids not to be interested in choosing a high shcool?

DS has no interest in looking at shcools, and has just told me he's have a look at the school he's going to when he's been told which one it is. hmm

I expect he will change his is mind when all his friends start talking about it. But meanwhile make the best of it - find out which one you like and start making the case for it! I had very strong views myself and was expecting a fight from DS as all his friends were going somewhere else, but fortunately he fell for it on our first visit.

He's a teenager (almost). in my experience most kids this age are not remotely interested in school. They only go because they have to. Even if they enjoy school whilst there, they would much rather be somewhere else anyway. They won't be thinking about all the things you are- that's your job. So no, this is perfectly normal.

my ds is in denial I think. If he shows no interest, he won't have to go,,,IYSWIM.,
