One of my children is taking Math classes two grades above his current age. The Math teacher embraced his ability and passion, and assigned him a steady stream of progressive topics to keep him challenged.

Though neither of these cases are based on the structure of a gifted program, I am happy that the curriculum has flexibility to allow for this type of individualization. - May 2014
