I understand your concern. The best option is always to keep your child near you. Since you have mentioned that the atmosphere at home is not positive then you may consider a good boarding. Do take your child into confidence. At her age she may rebel against the idea. And that could affect her attitude at the new school. Also at this stage she would give importance to friends. Hence it is very important to sit down with her and have a few rounds of conversation. Listen to her views too. See if you can think of goal setting with specific plans to study better. If it works then you need not send her away. Share your concern with her. Come to an understanding. Initially she may not like the idea. Visit a few schools and check out the facilities. That may encourage her All the best.
