This qualitative multi-site case study sought to examine the current educational provisions in place for intellectually gifted primary school students in Queensland, and to consider the attitudes and perceptions of a range of different stakeholders, including teachers, parents and students. The perspectives of students towards their school and being smart are reported in this paper. The major findings suggested that while students reported being relatively satisfied with their schools, a significant number were concerned about being teased because of their academic ability and achievements. Implications for practice and directions for further research are suggested.
