Hello,
We are navigating our way through school choices. Our daughter is currently in Kindergarten and felt that the teachers (she is at a highly reputable elementary school) she has were not keeping up with her. She was recently tested by a Psychologist as gifted and now we are figuring out next steps.

Can anyone tell me what is on the Gifted Characteristics scale that SRQ district uses?

We would also love to hear anyone's experiences with the choices you have made for your kids.

Thanks a bunch!

Your daughter is in kindergarten.

I would let her just be a six year old and worry about gifted in a couple of years.

Pine View is where you'll want her to go.

gifted: must be Chinese or Japanese.
in CA public schools, this is the starting line.
in CA privates, others have a slim chance.

My son goes to Pine View public school because he is gifted but Pine View is not for everyone - he gets several hours of homework a night and the school is challenging - there is also a gifted program in every school if she wants to stay in her base school.

She has to score high in an I.Q. test (it might have to be at least 130 but I forget) to get into PV - there are several tests you can use. You can have her tested by the school district or get your own private test.
