I have three children who attend public schools in Mandeville (Mandeville Elementary and Lake Harbor Middle School). Two of them are in the gifted program and my oldest is in the talented art program at Lake Harbor. I'd be happy to talk to you about either school. I can also direct you to parents from other area schools if you like. Contact me at your convenience at email@example.com or (985)807-3159.
