My baby

My baby didn't score high enough to be considered officially gifted, but I am not disappointed in her. I am disappointed in "the system".

This is actually so nuts. You must score in the 90th percentile or better to be gifted. The principal of our school has adamantly expressed that unless she scored high enough to be officially gifted, she would not admit her.

Miles scored in the 89th percentile. How's that for irony?!?! Anyway, no tears, my friends.

Just to clarify, that means that 89% of students taking this test aimed at 1st to 3rd graders scored lower than her on this test. She was 'smarter' than 89% of students taking a test for students including those three years older than her. She is 4 and a half.

There is still a chance she can start school. Please be praying, because I do believe this is something our entire family really needs.
