My son Matthew was given the green light last week to skip ahead to the next grade. The school emailed us today with the final details. He was tested over the last month and scored in the 99%tile for his age, and completed the curriculum for at least 3rd grade in all the subjects. We couldn't be more proud of his ability. He is going from 2nd grade to 3rd on Monday. i don't usually like to brag or boast but this is a very significant accomplishment. The best part was the phycologist telling us when he tested Matt , how Matt corrected him several times, and was right. Must have been hard to tell us that a seven yr old had to correct the college graduate during his test.
He obviously gets his smarts from his mother, just his great looks from his dad.
All kidding aside, he is definitely gifted and has made me incredibly proud . His ability to play piano is another story that I will share after his first concert next month, ( only 5 months of lessons ) he's amazing, and that's not just my opinion, that's from several credible sources in music.
