Gifted and Talented Program


Program Overview

Our Gifted and Talented Program serves students from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  Weekly enrichment activities are provided for grades K-2. These activities are designed to introduce and develop skills beyond the basic curriculum.  Beginning in third grade, identified students participate in the program.  Identified students in grades 3-4 are served through a pull-out resource program for 150 minutes each week.  Identified students in grades 5-12 participate in the program through secondary content classes, a variety of Pre-AP and AP classes, and/or concurrent credit courses.     

Definition of GT  

Gifted and talented children and youth are those of high potential or ability whose learning characteristics and educational needs require qualitatively differentiated educational experiences and/or services.

Possession of these talents and gifts, or the potential for their development will be evidenced through an interaction of above average intellectual ability, task commitment and/or motivation, and creative ability.
