A little more information for you: if you follow the link that Liz provided, you can see the ratings and test scores for each school as they compare to each other and the state. Also, there is a test that is typically given over the summer to see if a student qualifies for the gifted program, but the student has to be invited to the test based on GPA, etc. Each school participates in the Advanced Reading program which allows the student to read books at his or her level, answer questions and then advance to the next level. In 7th grade you may want to look into Team 63. It is a curriculum for more advanced students which prepares them for honors classes.

Both of my daughters went to Starline Elementary. I purposely bought my own house 4 house up from the school due to the high standards and excellence in education.
