(Davis Enterprise) What does it truly mean to be a gifted child in Davis?

Because apparently there is gifted, and then there is Don-Wook Shin.

Shin, now a junior at Davis High School, was doing long division in his head before the age of 5. He began learning calculus in fifth grade, took his first Advanced Placement test (Calculus BC — the more difficult of the two AP calculus tests) in seventh grade, and then proceeded to teach himself the curriculum to seven other AP math and science courses over the next three years.

By the end of 10th grade, he’d done so well on all those AP tests that he was recently named a Siemens Award winner as the highest-scoring male student in California.
