A Missouri program for gifted middle-school students puts them into a high-school setting at the start of sixth grade. The Middle Years Scholars Program enrolls about 40 students per grade each year, challenging them with some high-school course work. The students see their high-school peers infrequently. "We want to challenge them, but we certainly realize they are 11 years old," said the program's director.
