If we get there as planned.....(hmmm likely?) they boys will be in Kindergarden, 5th and 8th.....I'll be honest they are all smart kids I'm really not worried about the little guy since he's just starting, the middle guy would adjust but like I said my older one is the type of kid who doesn't have to open a book and can stand on his head w/his eye closed and pass anything...(IF HE WANTS TO) He just gets bored easily and with time going on I'm realizing his boredom may also have to do w/focusing so I am getting him screened over the next couple of months for add......He really is smart (not a genius) Not my kid....lol.....but I just want to make sure he gets more....I dont want to add to the problem....So I'm hoping that if the assesment does come back one way or the other then we can figure out how to adjust his learning and or get him on track where he is where eduationally he should be.....

I think all areas pertaining to SS probably do the same....I know here is NY there is alot of focus on its history in the books......So they will just have to learn it.....

I need to really clear out my brain and pull up both NC and NY school standards and do some comparisons........I'm sure everything will be fine I just honestly didnt know if certain areas/schools maybe did things at a different pace.....but if its all working on the same level then hopefully all will be fine.

The only school I know of in the Clayton area that I ever hear so-so things about is Cooper (as far as elementary goes, that is), but every other school seems to get rave reviews.
Actually, my daughter attends Cooper and we love it! When we first saw the school, we were a little iffy. I think its the location (alot of older homes nearby) and the school itself (on the outside) looks outdated. However, the teachers are remarkable. We found it to be one of the best schools our daughter as ever attended. Everyone from the Principal to the cafeteria staff to the fabulous libarian! Excellent school!

I appreciate the help

If Johnny can't read it or is way below grade level it makes my kid (on grade level) seem even smarter, or even gifted in comparison. Put my kid in a classroom with classmates having super achievers and my kid suddenly isn't the class genius... actually he may appear behind... Its all relative.

Just to put in my .02, we have one child that is finishing 1st grade with Jo. Co. schools now. We have been VERY pleased with the school system (last year and this year). As one of the other posters stated, our child too goes to Smithfield one day a week to the "A/G center" for more in-depth learning and it has been great! You should have no problems.
