My 9yo is very smart. He has a retention ability that is above average. I had in tested while in the public school system and he was off the charts(first grade). I then placed him in a catholic school and he is doing great, I think. However, it is only because of his friends....he could care less about school. I know he is not the smartest kid around but he is pretty smart. Smarter than me in many areas....except that I am the mom and he will NEVER really be smarter than me :-). I am worried that I may not be exposing him to a learning environment that is capitalizing on his interest. Is catholic school the best because he needs structure or should I look for a more artsy type school that will allow him to explore his creative side....my question is anyone out there in the same situation?
