  • Too old to have her tested for what? Maybe she's disruptive because she's bored. Boredom with school is often because it's not challenging enough. See about the gifted program. I'd speak with the principal again.

  • I don't think its to young to have her tested. She may need more challenging classes. I was that way in school and the more they gave me those behaviors slowly went away. Look into other schools that offer gifted programs or advances placement classes. My son was tested in the 4th grade. Saying their too old is bologna and that's putting it lightly.

  • I would see how it goes in third grade. You can always let the new teacher know your concerns and that teacher maybe more help.
    If not go talk to the principal. If you dont get anywhere with them go to the school board.

    I sent my daughter to school on the first day and I received a call that she was too smart for that school to come pick her up and enroll her in a school that has gifted classes. That was many years ago she is now 15 yr and has been in the gifted program since 1st grade.
