My 9 year old son seems to be more acedemically advanced that his peers. His teacher has recommended him for the highly capable program. He has testing next week. If he should pass the test, and we choose to enroll him in this program, then he will have to change schools. He is dead set against changing schools. However, gets into a lot of trouble in the classroom due to boredom. I want to keep him challenged with his education, but I am also worried about his social development. The drop out rate for advanced children is twice as high as it is for normal students, and that scares me. Should he change he will make new friends easily, he always does. My biggest fear is that if we make him change schools, he will not perfrom to the best of his ability in rebellion. Would you make your 9 year old change schools in order to keep him/her challenged and peforming at their peak abilities?
