I was in a gifted program in a public school and later transferred to
SVS. My sense of this was that at SVS all the kids were allowed to be
gifted, and that all types of "giftednesses" were accepted for what
they were. I'm not an expert, but if you want to talk to me about it,
I'd be happy to oblige.
