These things happen in most people's lives, and at every school. Amnd of course going to another school wouldn't solve the problem. Better to chat with her about things like friendships, wanting to be liked, but for the right reasons, and how friendships change. Thatg she can make new friends, who may be better friends.
It was good to boost her confidence. But like "2 cents worth" I don't encourage teahing litle girls to expect princes and horses --- she doesn't need them ! And I also like the point of no claiming she is the BEST in her class on so many points, such that a child feels insecure ( a better kid could always come along ) but emphasizing that she is the best she can be, and that how she is is excellent --- good in itself, not comparatively. You were right to emphasize her talents and all that is great about her. She is the best possible HER, however good or otherwise other kids may be. And she will be her own prince, and won't need a horse.
Think of maybe discussing this with her teacher, no as any emergency, but then next time you are in contact. Don't make too much of this, as it may make her more aware of it for longer than necessary.
Maybe we all have our gawky geeky teenager within us, but make sure he/she is accompanied also by our acomplished adult.
