Is it true that GEPers are more quiet and better behave than other?

To me, they are no different from other kids. There are both quiet and noisy ones out there.

Not at all. There are very noisy, playful ones; quiet serious ones.... They're no different from regular kids, running the spectrum.

Definitely not. But some commented that they have no EQ :? which I also disagree.

most of them are just like normal kids..one or two in the class can be very naughty and disturbing...and they are still young so, especially the boys, they would like to have fun too..and talking to one another abt their computer games and etc...

Definitely not quiet! dd's class gets scolded everyday for being talkative. They are really very normal kids, just learn things at a faster pace.

on tuition - dd attends chinese class once a week.

I found out quite a number of her classmates attend tuition for all subjects (except ss). Just wondering when is it necessary to attend tuition ? Has become a norm to attend tuition irregardless of results ? For GEP, are marks ranging from mid 70s - mid 80s still considered ok ?
