My son is in public school. Despite my concerns about his teacher, the district overall is great for gifted students. We're living in an area with a reputation for really good private schools. I think 70% proficient is about the lowest that I've seen anywhere in our district (which is the 32nd largest school district in the nation). Our school is around 75%. About half of the students come into my son's school with no or rudimentary English skills.
