Hello! my daughter has done the GT aplication this year and hopefully she will get it... but guess what? we are moving from Texas to California. I've being looking at schools and I see not all of them have this program. What do you suggest? To find an apartment close to one school that has it, and that is affortable is getting so painful; we found a great apartment but the school doesn't have the GT program.
It's not clear where you're moving in California, but I can assure you every school I've dealt with identifies gifted children and most schools make a sincere effort to cluster gifted children together. As far as differentiation goes, some teachers are much better at it than others, and you can always speak to a teacher at the beginning of the school year and help design a plan for your daughter.
Also, many schools have some form of open enrollment which will allow you to put your child in at one school even though you live near another.
You can post back with a few details or you can do a websearch of the district where you're moving for more information.
Well... we passed the GT application and now my daughter can be in the program. We are moving to San Fernando Valley, CA...
We are trying the apartment to be close to school and work... is being hard, but as soon as we get the apartment we will see what school we want. The apartment that we saw today belongs to Kester Ave Elementary, and the reviews are not so good... plus 38 kids per classroom?? that is what people say.... And I don't like that fact =(78336
