A school district in Calabasas, Calif., is piloting a gifted program that groups sixth-graders with IQs of 130 or higher for core subjects. During class at A.E. Wright Middle School, students work with peers to dig deeper into subjects and find their own methods to solve problems. "They need different work -- they need to have their thinking challenged, their depth of understanding broadened, and their skills sharpened," said principal Kimmarie Taylor.
