Happy New Year...my almost 9 year old daughter keeps me really hopping...well, all my kids do, but she is so advanced in her academic skills that it's hard to keep up. I want to make sure that she is always challenged and it's difficult.
Currently, I'm homeschooling her, but I'm considering putting her in our school district's "highly capable" program. Does anyone have experience with these programs? The parents and teachers of these programs that I've met seem to have an arrogance to them which I don't particularly like or admire (and I usually don't mind arrogance, but I guess it's arrogance with lack of respect for others that is the problem). Comments?
