WITH AN IQ SCORE OF 140, 4-YEAR-OLD ALANNAH GEORGE BECOMES ONE OF THE YOUNGEST MENSA MEMBERS

After being tested by educational psychologist Dr. Peter Congdon, four-year-old Alannah George earned an IQ score of 140 and was officially named an “intellectual genius.”

Before entering the classroom, Alannah started forming complete sentences at 18 months old, taught herself how to read, and was working her passion for numbers and letters. She went on to read full paragraphs from her favorite books by the age of three. Now at four, Alannah has become the UK’s second youngest member of Mensa, the world’s largest and oldest high IQ society. Two-year-old Elise Tan-Roberts became the youngest person to join Mensa in 2009.

“Dr. Congdon was very impressed and said he felt her score could be higher,” Alannah’s mom Nadine told The Mirror. “He wants to see her again in three years time because some aspects of her abilities could be better. She needs to be stretched. Her curriculum needs to be altered so she doesn’t get bored in class.”

Therefore, Alannah’s teachers at St. George’s School, in Windsor Castle, are working to adjust their curriculum to meet Alannah’s academic level. Her results from the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence Test put her at a reading level of a seven-year-old and a spelling and mental acuity level of a 6-and-half-a-year-old.

“It’s exciting and overwhelming,” Nadine said. “I want to make sure she achieves her potential and manages to perform to the best of her ability. She is so young, but she lives and breathes academia.”

For Alannah’s parents, the main goal is to make sure their daughter is “fulfilled and happy,” and gets to enjoy childhood. Alannah, who prefers to watch “Endless Numbers” on YouTube rather than cartoons, will start year one at St. George’s School in September as one of the youngest Mensa members in the world.

We can’t wait to see what she’ll accomplish next.
