    Wow Jen! All scores that are above DYS guidelines is a fabulous accomplishment for your dd9's first above level test!

    We got our Explore scores today too!
    The are excellent! A shocker for me actually!
    But bear in mind please that I am talking about my plain smart child, not gifted or anything like that. Just plain SMART!
    She is in 5th grade right now, very late summer B-day, so she could have been in 4th.
    Her Explore scores get her in everywhere but DYS. She does have one sub (Math - and she is not a math child!) test that would have her in DYS, but just one.
    BUT, she is above all scores needed for DYS for grade 4th!

    This is a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE self esteem booster for my DD! Always in a shadow of her "brainy" brother!
    She is so happy tonight, you would not believe! We are already making plans for her to go to Denver!
    She is going to accomplish great things in her life because she has wonderful work ethics!

    Hi Ania,

    I am so happy for your daughter. I was always the little sister in the Big Brother shadow, so I can totally relate. I was also the one with the good work ethic. But I totally underestimated my native abilities until grad school because I had grown up with such an unusually smart older brother (and I suspect your DS is brighter than my bro).

    Ania-

    I don't see how a "plain smart" kid can score at the 99th +percentile on an above level test, no matter how hard they try. I think you should consider that her gifts might just be later in showing. She sure sounds gifted to me!

    And Denver? Do you mean PG retreat?
