    "The school is fine for average, below average and academically superior kids alike. Gifted is a different end of the spectrum, the top 3 percent of the human population, which often gets left in the dust with their special needs but has the greatest potential to oh...cure diseases, advance technology, improve everyone's experience. Not the only potential, the greatest potential. Yet as a society we don't develop this talent. . Perhaps so many parents of the gifted write in on these forums as we can only rely on ourselves to warn each other. When the northeast realizes the southern states are surpassing them in gifted education, perhaps they will recognize they have left out an entire segment of the population, and they are behind the tempest. Overall their schools are great, and most people are served as most people are average, but does that make it right to leave out and entire group? ...the group I might add the segment that has the innate capability to change the world...the world we parents will live in when we retire! It sounds to me like some parents are angry their kids aren't gifted. Dnt be. It's no picnic raising gifted minds. We envy you!"

    "Phenomenal! I have seen my oldest through elementary and have two other ones still there and we have only had wonderful experiences, one teacher amazes me more than the other - they are all great! We have a range of learners, quite brilliant and somewhat struggling but the support system is there and quick to respond to needs of our children. Sure, there are always going to be things to pick apart but over all we couldn't be more pleased, enriching and stimulating environment with professional staff and teachers. Happy children learning a lot, what more can a parent ask for?"

    "I am amazed that my daughter is bringing home really advanced work from her kindergarten class. It's a full day program, and the kids seem to be hard at work! It's so different from when I was younger, and there was quite a bit more time for play. But I can't complain---my daughter is writing in full sentences and now loves to read many short easy reading books on her own. She just brought home her "weekend journal," in which she's been writing and illustrating since the beginning of the year. I just think her teacher is doing a wonderful job."

    "As a parent of children at SSES, I can't help but find some reviews to be shocking.The administration appears to be professional and communicative, frequently sending out email updates and other reminders, and encouraging parents to be involved. The teachers my children have are very professional and have always impressed me with their knowledge. And IT is integrated into the curriculum early---students begin computer classes in kindergarten. As an educator, I have been impressed by the demanding work presented to my children, and have watched their skills grow quickly. And regarding the conversation on the lack of gifted programs---I do understand this concern. But Easton has a lot in common with Lake Wobegon, where "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average." Test scores show that the students at SSES consistently outperform multiple school districts in the state. Learning is individualized---my children who were learning at a faster rate than their peers were provided with harder work. Sure, a gifted program would have been nice, but as long as my children remain challenged in the classroom, I am satisfied."
