Chicago is the only city in the top 5 largest metro areas without a gifted private option in the city proper. Chicago also lacks an option for HG and PG students, and something that would be more flexible and inclusive to allow part time enrollment and to meet other gifted needs. Something where everyone has a voice, where social and emotional well being is placed above rote, and where there is a small student:teacher ratio to allow the teachers to focus on teaching in a creative, collaborative enviornment.
