From my experience, this program is good for gifted kids, but as a profoundly gifted young person I didn't have access to the math classes I wanted to take because I was at too high of a level for my age and couldn't be grouped with older kids in these classes. The classes in other subject areas were also at a level that was lower for me than what I expected.
