Sciences and Arts Centers provide opportunities of creating and applying projects to the individuals who has superior intelligence. These institutions educate them to put science into the center of their lives by focusing these people's potentials. It is important to make them productive, developing their problem-solving skills and support them to create innovative ideas. In this study,  parents' ideas about future job choices of their gifted children, limitations in social settings, efficiency of physical conditions of institutions, education of teachers and benefits of Sciences and Arts Centers has been searched. 21 teenagers' parents have participated voluntarily.  In this qualitative research, both secondary school and Sciences and Arts Centers' absence of physical opportunities of buildings, lack of laboratories and materials has been identified as problems. However, results emphasize that these centers lead children to be interested in natural sciences, arts and mathematics. What is more, they are beneficial and necessary to improve youngsters' self-confidence, social skills and abilities to express them freely. Families may demand from government to construct efficient and high quality schools which are suitable to European standards and to support them economically. Furthermore, the Ministry of National Education should assign the Provincial Directorates for National Education to give seminars and conferences to inform teachers and parents to realize the differences of gifted children in early ages. It may also be advantageous to prepare brochures, posters, and handbooks to give them. In addition to these activities, related departments of universities might be the part of the project and it may reach larger masses in the society. Keywords: superior intelligence, gifted, sciences and arts centers, teachers, education
