Yoachim Levey Posted over 2 years ago Are there any teens on this site? I have a different educational background. I went to a Steiner school, two actually, but that makes little difference. Look it up. I'm 17 and I'm now in a state school and I don't like it. Specifically to me, I wanted to do further maths, but wasn't really allowed, and if I were allowed then I'd have to learn it ALL on my own. I genuinely have been held back, and I'm going to find it hard to catch up. So I definitely think that you should be encouraged and, more importantly, shown what you can do, e.g. A level choices.
