For Parents...

Parenting a gifted child is enriching but challenging! I am listing several websites below that will give you quick information about academics, socio-emotional needs, critical thinking activities, problem solving strategies, and other things related to gifted education. Please let me know if you have other suggestions or questions!

I have made every effort to be cautious with the sites I have linked because I know that students may also visit these sites; please make me aware of any objectionable material you encounter so I can continue to set high ethical use standards for our students. Thanks!
