Subject: Re: gifted middle school

Our school has three highly motivated and gifted students who are
currently eigth graders taking geometry at the high school next door. 
Both the middle and high schools have worked together to ensure that
the students are able to successfully meet academic criteria at both
levels.  These students are active members in our MathCounts team club
and are achieving quite highly with A averages in Honors Geometry.  If
students are inclined and are highly motivated to succeed, moving into
a high school geometry class is beneficial both academically and
personally to further develop self-confidence.
