Home Schooling a Good Fit for Spencer Mangan, 11

He taught himself to read when he was 18 months old. Now Spencer Mangan is studying at a high school level—and he's just 11 years old.

Welcome to our new weekly feature, Whiz Kid. Each Wednesday, find an extraordinary Mission Viejo kid featured here. Who knows? Your kid might be next.

A self-taught reader at only 18 months old, Spencer Mangan is an amazing kid, to be sure.

Spencer’s mom felt that his kindergarten school was a “poor fit” for her son,  so she began the Community Home Education Program. Last year Spencer began attending Fusion Academy & Learning Center here in Mission Viejo two days a week while continuing his home schooling.

Now at just 11 years old, Spencer is working at a high school junior level in his math studies. He applied Euclidean geometry to construct mathematically accurate scale models of the Big Ben tower.

Congratulations to this week's Whiz Kid!
