I have a gifted child who has been identified as a genius by Orange county. His first IQ screening score was 147, then he had to do a second, more detailed testing where he scored a 135. He is 10 years old & knows that he wants to be in genetic engineering. He has had this fascination for about 1.5 years now. We were advised by gifted staff during our gifted meeting, of the charter academy that he attends now, that he should be enrolled in a "Medical Magnet Program" for middle school. I can NOT seem to find anything for him in our area. I can NOT afford a private school, for I am a mom of 5, plus my hubby, and only 1 income. He requires a challenge to hold his interest & the best thing that I have read so far in my research for a gifted middle school, is that gifted children get pulled out of a "regular class" once a week for their advanced learning. What a JOKE! There is only 5 weeks left of school & I have NO IDEA where to get him enrolled for middle school. Please Help!
