Child #1- age 15, globally gifted. She was grade accelerated in elementary. She's generally viewed as HG+. She's currently in an early college program where she takes English and Social Studies at the honors high school junior level and everything else at college for duel high school/college credit. The program is part of the public school system, we don't have to pay for her college classes. So, she's working a year ahead for her age in English and Social Studies, about 3+ years ahead in her maths, sciences, languages and other academic courses (which, in her case, include additional English and history courses.)
Child #2- age 12, twice exceptional (both gifted and learning disabled.) He's a 7th grader in a local public middle school with a performing arts and science focus. He's allowed to work a year ahead in science and almost 2 years ahead in math. He continues Spanish Immersion for history and is in his 5th year of Mandarin. The rest of his classes are honors 7th grade level though quite open-ended and flexible. He struggles in writing.
