“Renu’s charismatic personality in working with children and parents is the spark that ignites understanding, acceptance and success at school and home. Her knowledge, understanding, and expertise regarding the gifted child is amazing. She is the consummate educator. Renu is well known for her ability to communicate effectively with teachers and parents about a child’s strengths and challenges. As the Head of School and Executive Director at (a private school in Boulder) for many years, she warmly welcomed gifted children and worked tirelessly to help them love who they were, and supported them to become well rounded individuals. Her goal for the children she works with is to help them become happy and successful not only academically but socially and emotionally as well. Her outstanding training and knowledge of the multiple intelligence model of giftedness has been critical in the development of her holistic honoring of these children and the unique vision she has created in the schools she has led. Working with Renu is an uplifting and life changing experience.”

“Renu Rose is a visionary when it comes to creating a fertile environment to help children who are gifted succeed and excel in school and life. While compassionately honoring each child’s individual gifts, needs, and feelings, Ms. Rose also creates the structure and systems that allow for accountability and progress, in an environment of peace and positivity. It often seems that one must choose between a supportive and compassionate environment, or one of achievement and accountability. Renu Rose has the unusual ability to find the right balance time and again. Her in-tune intuition, personal love of learning, expertise and extreme care for these children combine to create a powerful experience for students, families, and educators as a team. Any family working with Ms. Rose as a “guide to giftedness” will surely feel a great sense of relief, knowing they are in the best of hands.”

“You have found a rare gem in Renu Rose and her new SAGE Center. My wife and I first met Renu in 2010 when we came to her for help because of our frustration with schools that were not able to take care of our gifted son properly. She allowed for two hours in her schedule to address our concerns. I was touched deeply by her unique combination of compassion, Harvard-intellect, and intuitive ability to lead her school and her teachers. She completely understood how to guide our son and how to serve his best and highest good. I am happy for your child that you have found this website.”
