I am new to this board and asking you for advice with my 4 year old gifted son. By the way, I am currently living in an Asian country.
My son goes to a pre-kindergarten and will be 5 yrs old on August 30. Recently he has been offered places by 2 international schools. He will start Year 1 (US equivalent kindergarten) in one school whose cutoff date is Dec. 31. However, another school with its cutoff date on Aug. 31 will only put him into Reception (US equivalent pre-kindergarten), which means that my son needs to repeat a year.
I prefer the latter school because of its dual language program and small class size. But... he is gifted, especially with math. Will he lose interests in going to school being one of the biggest in the class? Or can he be better off being confident in the class as long as teachers can accomodate his academic needs?
Please give your thoughts. Thanks! noa
