level students who have IQs of 130 and above instead of having them merely relegated to specific gifted classes while they have to take regular classes w/other students who clearly aren't as smart as they are? Do you believe that by instituting schools specifically for gifted & genius level students away from the average student population would be immensely beneficial to the former?

Wouldn't you have thrived more if you went to a school designated for gifted & genius level students like yourself. parents did the same as you did. There was such a plan in the 7th grade but unfortunately it was shelved.
I was already the youngest in my class, and the smallest. I didn't need to be any more different by going to a special school. I think I thrived just fine, without being separated from my neighborhood friends.
I understand. I only took specialized classes w/other gifted students in the summers before going to 7th & 8th grade. To reiterate, I & other gifted students were to participate in a year around gifted program but it was cancelled.
Yes, TELL ME ABOUT IT!
