Now my children wish everyday was Saturday, because they cannot wait for another week of class.

I just want to let you know that the Montclair Gifted program has been monumental in our lives by providing an educational setting that allows our son to be himself, with motivating curriculum, understanding teachers and children with whom he relates.

I wanted you to know that this parent is enormously grateful. It has been so hard fighting the school for even minimal accommodations, and this program makes me feel like someone's got my back, like there's a place where we are the norm and our concerns are shared and our needs are met. It's really, really helpful. So - thank you!

Brandon loved the Bubbleology and Paleontology classes "infinity, infinity times!" He is so excited and can't wait to go back for the next classes. It was fabulous.

All of you who have been working with our son during his first "year" attending the MSU Academically G&T program have played a big part in inspiring his love of learning and helping our families’ efforts to find ways to create and support a unique, fascinating and customized curriculum for our "homeschooled" "gifted" child.
-Bridget and Josh (Spring 2010)
Thank you for making our daughter feel that math is fun! The class is clearly covering areas she hasn't been exposed to and we are very excited about it.
She loved Grossology.....I mean really loved that class...we have the moldy bread to prove it!
Last night, our son was so excited to talk about his day. He really liked his work, and he was so impressed with your kindness and the kindness of the other staff at the Program.
He expressed his hope to get into college as soon as possible.
The POGO lectures have been amazing and can't thank you enough for offering them. I looked into your program for my children because I wanted more for my children. Little did I realize that I found a program that has helped all of us. It has answered a ton of questions and issues for not only my children but for me too. I feel like your program has become my safety net of where/who to go to if I'm faced with any challenges regarding my children. I recently spoke about your program to a neighbor who asked about it and found my face light up with a ton of information I had to offer. It was easy to offer because I "believe" in your program and am inspired by it. "We love it"! Keep doing what your doing, "please".
Please accept our most sincere thanks for evolving the program the way you have done. Our kids enjoyed each and every class! Our daughter had an invitation to a birthday party to see a movie for which she would have had to miss her MSU Saturday class and she chose to attend her class. She said " Mom, watching a movie and having a party with my friends will be great but I cannot miss my Television class for that!"
"I don't want to go to my school anymore. Do you think the Saturday Gifted Program at Montclair State University could be every day? I would LOVE to go there all the time!"

I want to thank you and the staff for providing my daughter with such an amazing experience during Session 1 of the AG&T Youth Summer Camp. My wife and I can't begin to tell you how grateful we are to see our daughter resonate with a program that actually satisfied her thirst for knowledge, demonstrate her strengths and for just being around children with similar appetites for experiencing such diversity your program offers. It was such a pleasure to get to see my daughter wake up early with a smile on her face and be excited about going to camp every day and tell us she can't wait to go back again next year. -

Just wanted to let you know that our daughter had such a great time at camp. She really enjoyed each and every course and met a wonderful group of kids. She told me that they were all almost crying the last day because they didn't want to leave! Wow. Kudos to you all. Thanks.
