Hi all,
We are planning a move soon and have narrowed down to Colleyville, Southlake or Flower Mound. I just need some info on schools. Does anyone know if any of the elementary schools in these towns have any advanced classes? If so, are pull aside programs and at what grades do they start? My son is in first grade and totally bored in his current classes, his kindergarden (Montessori) had indicated to us that he is advanced and would need some sort of additional challenges so as to not get bored. Any help is appreciated as we do not want to do the private school thing. Thanks.

Grapevine and Colleyville share the Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. Here's their website: Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District

They refer to the classes as "gifted" and they all offer them starting in Kindergarten.

But your child will need to pass tests in order to get in and not many get in.

If you can afford Southlake, you won't be disappointed. You can also hear first hand from parents in the schools on the following site.

gifted classes sometimes don't start in kindergarten because frankly it is very difficult to get an accurate reading on child's intelligence/gifted abilities at kindergarten age...
you should check out the GCISD (Colleyville ISD) and Lewisville ISD (Flower Mound for the most part) and see what their web sites say
it is called LEAP in Lewisville
sometimes in elementary school these programs are pull-out programs where students go to different teacher for certain periods a week--not full time classes
