I am rapidly losing all hope that Trey's needs will be met within the public school system, or even in the private school system. Most institutions are just not prepared to educate an extremely gifted child.

I can't say that the school isn't trying - he's getting his acceleration test, they've been sending him to 1st grade for supplemental reading, his math worksheets are not the same as his friends. However, he's still 5. He still needs to have outside recess (which he has not been getting at all.) He still needs free time in his day to process what he's learned and make decisions.

I dunno, time for another meeting - and I've contacted a gifted advocacy organization for help. I don't want him to feel that being smart is a burden - although it can be. I don't want him to feel too different, although he is very different from his calendar peers.

I will try some more direct education activities this summer, and then we'll see. I've been resistant to commit to homeschooling, but Trey may not have another option to satisfy his mind and body.
