Metairie Academy for Advanced Studies Reviews
This is school is great as long as your child falls into the average of all gifted students. It does not have challenging curriculum for those who fall above the norm. What they do have is boring to these students. Also they will not know, won't take the time, and don't have the know how to create such a curriculum for those students. They basically tell them to work more on Renzulli or other computer sites they are promoting. Much of the sites are pretty easy, repetitive & boring as well to those who are extremely gifted. The level of hands on activities are limited too. I might also add they tend to over emphasize things that are un important.
