Hi Bronxmom!

Your ds is still so young. The choice to leave the gifted school would probably be very challenging to reverse. (Is the gifted school public?) Grades really don�t matter until around 5th grade in many cases. Although his grades may improve at the regular school, he might actually learn more at the gifted school. Yet you don�t want your child to become accustomed to earning mediocre grades.

What makes the neighborhood school so sweet and progressive (besides proximity and familiar faces)?
