Gifted Education

Mission

The gifted and talented program was developed to ensure that our students are challenged to achieve their highest potential and that curriculum and learning opportunities are in line with their specific needs, interests and abilities.

Beliefs

  • District administration, teachers, families, and the community share the responsibility to provide relevant and challenging opportunities to develop the individual potential of advanced learners.
  • Gifted students have unique strengths and needs that must be addressed.
  • Gifted ability exists and should be identified and served in students of all ages from all cultures, races, ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic groups.
  • Every child deserves a rigorous and challenging curriculum with tiered programming and a continuum of services.
  • Every child shares the responsibility for maximizing the learning opportunities provided.
