Hey Ladies , I am a mother of three kids two boys ages 7 and 4 and a daughter age 5 . My oldest son Ryley has been accepted into the TAG ( talented and gifted students ) program at his school. He LOVES it .He says that's his favorite thing to do at school. I guess my question is what are magent schools ? The reason I am asking is I got one of the automated phone calls from the kids school asking if we would like to sign our kids up for a magnet school and telling us that the deadline in the 18th.. I don't know much about them but the few things that I have read . From what I have read it seems that they are for gifted children ( am I wrong ) ? And I was wondering with my son being in the TAG program would it be something worth looking into for him. He is in 1st grade .. My husband is Navy and we moved from Spain. When we got here he was behind in his reading because they didn't do much of anything with him at the school there. I think he's getting back on track there though . With what his teacher is telling me . I would like to know if any of you ladies have kids in a magnet school or know anything about them and what you think . I would just like some advice . Thanks .
