About

I am Royce Wells, a gifted high school student who hopes that by writing about Gifted Education from a students perspective, the area of gifted education will become more student friendly. I write for all gifted students and I hope my views are an accurate render of the views of all gifted students.

  1. Hello

    G’night

  2. I LOVE your sight. I am a gifted adult with a gifted college age son. Negotiating public education was a challenge, but can be done.

    Our son was in a 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade combination class for 3 years. The teacher had him choose his own vocabulary & spelling words, reading material and accelerated his other subjects. He also participated in the pull-out gifted program.

    In 4th & 5th he was again in a multi-grade class. This time it was a fullday gifted program with a wonderful group of gifted students.

    We opted for a private mid-high school for our son. It was expensive but eliminated the posibility of slower pace, less challenge (except in a few classes). He had interesting, challenging courses, like minded students who are bright and highly motivated.

    He chose a public college because he felt the private school did not give him a large enough perspective with a variety of students. He’s completing his senior year in college.

    Please keep this up. Many gifted students struggle with school (to be challenging enough), fitting in, finding purpose and enjoying being their talented selves. KUDOS for YOU!!!

  5. Thanks for all of the supportive comments. I am sorry that I have not been updating the site in the last two months, there were many things with school that I had to get done as well as a three week long summer camp.
