I have 3 children, 2 attend a school for the highly gifted. Just curious as to what other schools SPECIFICALLY for highly gifted are out there. I know of 3 public schools 1 in NC one at the Davidson Institue and one in Florida, I think Pine View?? Any others that you recommend.

I am not sure you want the 2 hour drive but Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy is open to ANY NC resident. My 11 YO and my 7YO go there

Thanks. I'm in Rockingham. It's about 2 hours east of Charlotte, 2 hours south of Raleigh/Durham, and an 1 1/2 hours south of Greensboro. It's a rural county and there isn't much for the gifted. We are in a church private school, using A Beka. It's a great curriculum, but the teachers aren't real innovative. I'd like to see my daughters do more.

I live in NC. Are these schools boarding schools? How do I google these schools?

My kids go to Hulstrom Options in Northglenn, Co. It's K-8 now, so they have more time in the program, and it's highly rated on our yearly school accountability reports.

Thanks for all the posts. I have been to the hogies web page and the Davidson Institute web page. I really am looking for parent to parent input, so thanks to all of you. It sometimes is very difficult to find a school that specializes in educationg the highly gifted. Gifted magnets seem to be almost everywhere, but HIGHLY gifted is . tough

My son attends The Roeper School in Bloomfield Hills, MI, which is in the Metro Detroit area (www.roeper.org). They do an excellent job recognizing that gifted children are asynchronous in their learning and addressing the individual educational needs of each child. Having a low student:teacher ratio helps with this process. It is difficult to find a complete listing of gifted schools throughout the U.S., which makes it difficult when considering a move to a different part of the country, but www.hoagiesgifted.org has the best listing I have been able to find. (http://www.hoagiesgifted.org/schools.htm...). If there's a better listing out there I'd love to know about it.

I went to Hunter Elementary and Hunter High School in NYC....I hope to send my own children there. The faculty is amazing...many of my teachers still teach there.

Thanks for the note. I looked at the web site it looks interesting but for gifted not specifically Highly gifted.

My husband's PG cousins went to the Mackintosh Academy in Denver for a while.  I think it has changed management, and I know it has moved since then.
