We have a very gifted 8yo in 2nd grade at our neighborhood school. He has ADHD as well and just does not fit in socially with the other kids. They have only 1 hr per week of GT pull-out at his school. We are considering enrolling him a gifted magnet school in a neighboring district. We have some concerns about his ability to adapt to change and whether putting him with only gifted kids will leave him still unable to relate to non-gifted peers. Has anybody gone through this decision? We also don't want to alienate the neighborhood school as we have a younger son who will go there. I would appreciate any insights.
