    Ask your school if they have a program for gifted kids. Also check with your county's board of education to see if they have magnet schools or anything.

    Montesorri is suppose to be a great school for gifted kids
    The Montessori Foundation

    If you want to you can also ask about testing out of classes so you don't have to do a class that you are advanced in.

    Well first what level are you, grade school, high school or what?

    Next this is your parents responsibility, what do they want.

    Test with Mensa and become a member. You will then be connected with other gifted young people in your area for social activities as well as for intellectual ones.

    Don't ever, ever depend on someone else to enrich your life. As a gifted person, that is your duty to yourself. Challenge yourself in all sorts of ways--physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Read books you wouldn't ordinarily read and really think about what they say. Talk to people you normally avoid and figure out how they add to your life. Make your own fun and challenges!

    Yeah you can! Hi my names claire and I'm gifted too. I was in 5th grade last year and went to explorer k-8 in Florida last year. First you have to to get a gifted test which is a iq test and all that stuff. Then the school will have a conference with your parents and most likely you will get put in a program, good luck! (I have been in gifted since kindergarten, sixth now)
