Schools for the Gifted Child

Child Geniuses Find A Home CBSSchools for the Gifted Child | Hoagies' Gifted / AP, an interview with Jan and Bob Davidson.  "When you look at underachievement, the group that is really under achieving are the very bright kids because there is the greatest difference between what is offered of them and what they can do."

The question is often asked, Are there special schools for gifted children? For highly gifted children? But there are few answers. This list attempts to be an answer, but comes with many caveats. First and foremost, schools are listed here by either their own or parent recommendations - this listing is in no way a recommendation for any specific school for a specific student. Some of these schools are public, some are private. Some test very strictly for gifted or highly gifted students; others are very specialized in their academics, and therefore draw such students without testing explicitly for the gifted.

That said, at least this list is a beginning, a list of a few schools where at least some of our children can find a stimulating education, among other children like themselves.
