Sage Ridge is a good school with an excellent cirriculum. The classes are small, which gives more one on one learning. The teachers are really nice and know how to teach well.

I believe this resource is beneficial as an alternative to public school for profoundly gifted students. The students at this school are placement tested and can advance to the appropriate level. There are small class sizes allowing more conversation and indepth study of topics. The social emotional needs are addressed in several ways one being an advisory period for 15 minutes each day. The advisory adult student ratio is 1:8. There is much more rigor in the curriculum than in public schools. They provide a wireless laptop environment and each student has a laptop which is used for assignments and research throughout the day.
