Reply to "so ~ enough to ~"

Hi, Sly,

It's not correct to combine "so" with "enough." You should say:

- The boy is not old enough to go to high school (meaning: The boy is too young to go to high school).

Then, what is the meaning as follows.

a) The boy(or gury) is not so old that he can go to high school.
b) The guy(or boy) is not so old that he can't go to high school.


q1) Are those sentence correct?

q2) If right, can I rewrite as follows?":

a) The boy is not old enough to go to high school.
(meaning he must be under 10 year old.)

b) The boy is too old to go the high school
(meanging he must be over 30 year old )
