I am glad to have a teacher who listens and supports me with my growth and to have like minded peers in my classes. These two things have supported me to grow socially.
Thank you for providing a place for me to flourish in an academic setting with my peers. I am very grateful and thankful for the opportunities I have experienced so far with G.T.ed.
I have greatly enjoyed my time in this class and working with peers and Mr. Matt to help build and discuss, problems, new ideas, strategies and possible solutions for the community. -From our Youth Education Council
This club has been refreshing, soul filling, and makes me very excited for each week. I have enjoyed the peer interaction and encouragement by both my friends/peers and teachers both with creativity and social interaction. I am so very glad to have this club each week. The structure, fun and storytelling provides a great learning environment. -From our Dungeons and Dragons Club
I've never done a gifted program before and I think I'll do more. My favorite part was being able to interact with the students from other classes.
The G.T.ed classes were very engaging and fun. I hope to continue more of these classes in the future. It was vey fun, and I look forward to more. G.T.ed was very fun, engaging, and educational.
I liked the experiments and how the chemistry behind the experiments was explained. The group was fun! I enjoyed the class a lot and the teacher was fun! The D&D was fun and all the activities were interesting to me! It was interesting, fun, and the right pace.
The teacher was great, and I learned a lot! Small classes, engaging teachers, good length of class. The human anatomy class helped prepare me for this year’s science class, so I liked that the classes can help you prepare for the school year.
[My child] says she is enjoying the class. She is campaigning with my wife to continue on next week, too, [instead of going on family vacation].
I think it’s critically important that she be involved in social activities with other gifted / highly gifted kids, and your classes are an important part of that for us.
I was so excited to find your program because we’ve been looking for ways to socialize [My G&T child] with others like him for years.
After meeting with you, [my g&T child] went from feeling completely defeated 30 min ago to smiling and acting his normal happy self. You know we are signing up ASAP.
I know everything at G.T.ed I could sign my kid up for will be engaging and enjoyable for him.
Your classes are fantastic… your classes are so much deeper and more fascinating than most classes I’ve signed my G&T child up for
A big thank you! [My G&T child] has probably never had a conversation like that with a teacher… He came up to me and said “wow, that was fun!”
[My child] learned so much and wants to learn more about his class topics.
I truly get excited about programs like these. It isn’t always easy to connect with like minded gifted or Twice-Exceptional students/teachers. Many of the online sources are cost prohibitive and not all school districts support their gifted students adequately. It is invigorating to be involved with a group of people who “get it” understanding and embracing all of the things that come along with giftedness.
“She’s also taking part in G.T.ed/edrev classes, mostly, but not all, fun, and all of the other students are also gifted, and the social interaction she has there is a huge part of her not hiding her intelligence.”
It is obvious you have put time, effort, and passion into the courses.
