HI. I'm not from VT, but I'm wondering if you can clarify whether you're seeking only a public school, or perhaps private? In many areas, G/T instruction doesn't begin in public schools until 3rd grade, but a good teacher can differentiate instruction at any point. There's a book by Susan Winebrenner called "Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom" and I believe there is a similar book for teaching young gifted kids, although I don't have that author's name off the top of my head. You might also want to join Greatschool's Gifted Group at http://community.greatschools.net/groups/11537 for additional suggestions.

Hi there- Did you ever find a school for your gifted child? We are considering a move to Burlington, and we had gifted middle school and elementary students (1 each) who have had access to accelerated material where we live currently (6th grader is enrolled in two high school courses). We are worried they won't be challenged appropriately. Any info you have is welcome.

You should definitely look at Mater Christi in Burlington. It's located across from UVM. I saw a sign that says they are having an open house today but you could always just call the school and I'm sure you could arrange for a personal tour.
