School board won't let brilliant 10-year-old into high school

Must be in age-appropriate grade!

Here's what I don't get.

You mean in the WHOLE SCHOOL BOARD there is no means to accommodate a kid with his profile? There are no classes for gifted kids? There is no possible arrangement that he takes Grade 9 math and English-- core- subjects-- in the morning and maybe be shipped off in the afternoon to Grade six PE and art courses (classes where he could socialize)?

Lasso of Truth suggests homeschooling. But his mom may not have the ability to teach this kid.

Are there no other kids in Windsor who are gifted?

There's something wrong with this story
