I have a daughter in the gifted program and it has really helped her. I have seen her come out of her shell so much this year. She really likes it. If your child has the opportunity to get into the program I highly recommend it especially it they plan to attend college!
I have a daughter in the gifted program and she loves it. She is in eighth grade and before 5th grade she was never challenged. This program is great for her. I highly recommend this program for gifted students.
I have a child that is in the intervention program within the middle school and as a parent of a special needs child I feel that the teachers within this program push the child off to other people instead of getting to the root of the problem especially when dicipline is involved. When a child has emotional and behaivorial issues their 'bed side manner' so to speak when it comes to handling students and communication with parents is totally unacceptable and should be evaluated upon the state level.
There is great emphasis on standardized testing and discipline issues. Although I feel my child is safe at this school, I would like to see less emphasis on the testing and more on the overall learning process. There isn't much parent involvment but I understand this wanes as children get older. The staff is open and very willing to work with parents.
