My husband and I count ourselves lucky to live in a county that has a full-time gifted elementary school. We also count ourselves lucky that our child got into the school, as there is a lottery selection after the application is verified. The school is full of wonderful teachers and parents who are involved. I only wish there were more schools like this in the county.
