What activities does he do outside school?

My DD is extremely able. She attended a normal junior high, and is now in a highly selective senior high programme where she is top of her class despite being a year ahead.TBH being in a selective class has made little difference (except that the lessons are quieter and somewhat more productive) - if anything boredom has been more of an issue this year than previously. However she has a lot of outside interests (music, writing, recording - mostly done under her own steam) and this seems to provide the stimulation she needs.

That's fantastic.

Outside activities and something else challenging like sports.
Boredom may help creativity!

My ds was bored before, but now quite content after finding Khan Academy. Maths, coding, science, history.

With Khan, you don't need to teach. It has tutorial videos so my ds do it all by himself. It does go beyond high school level, so I'm sure there's a lot more new things for him.
