    If she is so smart, how come she isn’t skipping grades and going straight to high school?

    because, like I was recommended for skipping 2nd grade when I moved to Calif from Canada after attending 1st grade there. My mother wisely said no, that she wanted me to stay with my own age level as much as possible.
    Only one real problem arose (that I am aware of) because of that decision. I was already writing cursive, but in Calif they were still printing and I was discouraged from writing cursive and had to print all over again and then, a year later, relearn cursive, which was sloppier than before.

    A lot of the time kids have the intellect to be advanced, but the parents realize they lack the social maturity to deal with older kids.

    My son was smart enough to skip but not mature enough. Sometimes being around older kids isn’t good for them.

    The reason you may feel the need to skip grades is because the elementary teachers often are not keeping pace with what should be taught, especially past 3rd grade or so. Why would that be? Well, the brightest people don’t study elementary ed. in college. They may not understand the material, especially math, themselves. That’s what happened to me. You could end up thinking you’re a genius because the class moves so slow. Parents have to supplement their kid’s classes with extra material. My school didn’t use text books for most classes because of the expensive sports programs
    -
    In middle school the sports programs emerge and coaches are teaching classes. Nothing can interfere with sports and in my middle school we did without textbooks, just like the elementary school. The high school was good, but without the elementary and middle school background there could be a problem. In any case none of it prepares kids for a good state university.

    If you don’t believe me check out the books out there about what a kid should know at each grade level. I graduated high school with a 1st grade education. A friend of mine graduated not knowing how to read. Meanwhile my dumb, immigrant parents imagined from all the hype that I was even too well prepared, and I might be too big for my britches. They made me work after school every day because there was a danger I was too smart. But they got much better educations than me in the prison camps. They actually had earnest, caring teachers there, along with old text books.
