DS, 10, is extremely bright and self motivated. The type of kid where if I tell him to go outside and play, will say no I want to do my homework. He is a happy healthy kid otherwise and not pressured from me or dh to be this way. My concern is that in his current mainstream chassidish cheder he won't reach his full potential. Are there any other options in Monsey area for children like this where they learn on a higher level then average?

Maybe the non chasidish schools are more academic, both in limidei Kodesh and limidei Chol? I would think that’s likely.

Forget the school system and give him what he needs out of school hours.

Agree with this. At this age there are several after cheder masmidim programs. Some are more intellectually stimulating than others.

But keep in mind that even among the chasidish mosdos there's a difference in the level of learning from one cheder to the next. But if you're limited to your chassidus' cheder...

Yeah but if the kid is bored the whole day it doesn't help.

Not strictly true. It does help even if he is bored all day. Anyway, a) this was not the question - she asked how to help him fill his potential not how to deal with boredom in school b) no child is bored ALL day. There are lots of aspects of learning which are not academic

There isn't anything, as far as I know. Monsey Jewish schools are definitely lagging behind the rest of the world in the education department. I also switched my son out to a more modern yeshiva, once he caught up there (it took him about a month) he went right back to being bored.

I got the school to work with me, and I send extra work with my son to school to do during class time. As long as he does it quietly, I found the rebbi's and teachers didn't mind. As long as he knows what's going on in class and keeps his grades up, he can do quiet work on his own. I have him teaching himself math concepts, he did a research paper, critical thinking worksheets, etc. I found all these online and printed them out. Either myself or his teacher "graded" this work.
