Outstanding!! They immediately recognized that our son was not a typical student and as a 7th grader admitted him to the "upper school" where he was able to move right into 9th and 10th grade classes. Our son was not particularly motivated but he is finally being "stretched" and seems to love it! (his previous school's idea of challenging him was just to pile on more work!!) For the first time in his academic life he is happy and I give Camelot full credit! They truly understand gifted children!

Camelot allowed my son to enroll in kindergarten a year before he would have started public school; quickly and independently assessed that he was reading many years above grade level; and developed an individualized curriculum to meet his needs. My son is happy and thriving there, and I love not having to constantly advocate for him. This is a school that "gets" gifted kids, and it's a real bargain by private school standards. I couldn't ask for more.

I just wish we had found Camelot sooner! My daughter is in the middle grades, and you couldn't ask for two more patience teachers. We cannot believe the progress she has made in just one year. She loves going to school now which is something we never thought we would see. Don’t let the exterior fool you, this is an amazing school!
