THis is such a hard situation, and I don't envy the choices you're going to have to make.

I will say that I was identified at gifted in third grade and transferred to a special school just for gifted kids, and it made all the difference for me. I was no longer bored in school, and I was around other kids who processed things the same way I did and who were interested in the same sorts of things. I don't know that I would have survived high school had I been in a "normal" school.

The school I went to was far from fancy - it was all portable buildings, no gym, no cafeteria, barely a library.

But I wouldn't trade my years at "Camp PV" for anything.

Just something to consider while you are considering the special center.

Interesting post. My son's birthday is Sept. 2 and the cutoff was Sept 1 so he is in pre-k this year. We were happy because he has always been very shy and seems socially immature. However, we just had a conference with the director of his school because he's academically bored.


my brain is mush right now, so I have no words of wisdom - just wanted to say AMEN to the title of this post because it is so true! I'll be thinking of you & Trout and the decisions that lie ahead...
