Understanding Twice-Exceptional Students

2019-08-09T14:06:57-05:00

Students who are classified as gifted and talented are often thought to be learners who exceed in all areas of study.

A child may have a vocabulary bigger than any one of their classmates, yet struggle with simple [...]

International Students Can Overcome Challenges at a Private School

2019-07-29T09:22:03-05:00

When international students come to the United States to study, they get a high-quality education, especially if they go to a private school. The problem, however, lies in cultural adjustment. Even if they come from an English-speaking country, they may speak with a different accent. This makes them feel different as compared to the student [...]

How a Small School Will Help to Identify Your Child’s Strengths and Weaknesses

2019-07-25T09:26:00-05:00

In some ways, a small school can be beneficial for any type of student. A small school provides a greater amount of flexibility, allowing students to spend more time working on subjects that they love (or those in which they require more help). At the same time, being at a small school means that your [...]

Many schools across the nation have been putting time, effort, and money into gifted and talented programs.

One [...]

Four Students Who Learn Better at a Smaller School

2019-06-21T14:34:03-05:00

No two students exactly are the same. And it makes sense that different students learn better in different situations. At The Tenney School, we understand that "one size fits all" does not apply to education. For instance, many young people attend public school, where hundreds of students are crammed into one building. But a big [...]

Gifted and Talented: The Importance of Challenging Gifted Children

2019-05-11T08:53:11-05:00

As parents, we all think our children are unique. We may ooh, and awe at the mermaid picture Suzie has drawn or praise Billy repeatedly for his perfect score on his spelling test. Indeed, all children are individuals, and in their own way special, but in reality, only about 10% of the United States children [...]
