Message Subject Were You Part Of The "Mentally Gifted Minds" Program In California Scools back in the 70's?

i just stumbled on this website. I was in one of the first mentally gifted programs in Los Angeles, in the late 60's. In retrospect, i feel like we were guinea pigs -- see how much they could throw at us and see how much we could absorb. I basically got most of my high school education before i finished the 6th grade. The trouble was that I was thrown back into a regular school after that, (we called it Junior High in those days, not middle school). I was a freak -- no social skills, because I had been isolated all those years with the others in my class. The same students moved together to each grade. We never interacted with the others in the school. It was like they didn't know what to do with us afterwards, made no provisions beyond elementary school. BTW -- although I understand many of us DID go on to brilliant lives and careers, I ended up totally burned outpoop by the time I had finished 9th grade. I would love to find information about any studies that were done to follow what happened to us "freaks" after they put us back into the general population.
