Wow so sad to hear that everyone had just bad experiences. I went to public schools is a small town Kindergarten through Senior year. Despite being a very small town, I got a great education. They pushed math & science for girls as well as boys & made the boys take home ec. (I'm old & in those days that was unheard of).

They didn't have a gifted program but they did give extra to those of us that were ahead. I was lucky I wasn't the only 1. I feel I got a great education. Everything they taught in my 1st 2 accounting classes in college, I had already learned in high school.

Now I wasn't popular but it wasn't because of academics - more because of things going on at home causing me to withdraw.
