    They give the students individual attention and they struggle hard with the little budget to keep the gifted child interested. I have a gifted child so I know how much the school wants to help him stay interested and challenged. They do pretty darn good on what little they have monitarily and they make up by using the environment they are blessed with which is the great Northwoods of northern Minnesota.
