Twenty years ago our gifted children were ridiculed by the staff and administration as being elitist. I give you all the blessings in the world to have this academy have a wonderful learning environment for the gifted children. Good luck!

Gifted children are still treated badly at public schools. One of my kids is extremely bright -- on the high end of the gifted scale. We found it impossible to get the resources we needed at the local elementary school. The "Challenge Teacher" was a washed up tenured teacher who wanted a cush job with easy kids so she picked her favorites (kids whose moms kissed her butt and brought her gifts). None of the kids she worked with are in the gifted program at the junior high where my son now attends. He's in the gifted program there but those kids didn't make the cut. If people in this state will ever stop voting for Democrats, positive changes may happen in public schools. Democrats are in bed with the Union. Nothing will change until that does. Sending my kids to public schools was what made me stop voting for Democrats.
