Here’s a great link to a documentary chronicling the enrollment process for gifted children in New York City. FASCINATING – whether you have kids or not!
A new school for gifted and talented children opened this fall in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn School of Inquiry is written about here, on examiner.com. Examiner.com also gives a brief overview on gifted and talented education in a separate article, here.
It is wonderful that new options are becoming available for G&T children, for whom mainstream schools aren’t usually the best fit. Not only do G&T children need further opportunities in the areas in which they excel, but they also typically need extra support in areas of academic weakness.
If the Examiner.com Gifted Education 101 leaves your head spinning (what tests do I need for which schools? which percentile do I need to achieve on which tests?), the consultants at School Choice International will be able to point you in the right direction!
