My son goes to a Highly Capable program at a school about 20 minutes from here. His bus picks him up at 650 AM, and school starts at 8am. They get out at 230 and he gets here at 330 pm. So he rides the bus a little over 2 hours a day, but he uses it for homework time and socializing time. I can't drive him because my other 2 go to different schools, so all 3 kids are in different schools, and I have to drive my oldest son to his bus stop and my 5 year old DD to kindergarten at 740 and 8:00am so there is no way I could drop my middle son off at his school 40 minutes early lol. BUt the school is good for him, he was not being challenged in his other school. He is in 5th grade and at an 8th grade level as far as math and writing, and at a 11th grade reading level. There is nothing else we could do for him but send him to this school.
