Gifted Program

Students in first through fifth grade, who qualify for Gifted Education, participate in a full-time gifted program, and are grouped in self-contained homerooms. The Gifted Education Program offers a differentiated curriculum based on content, concepts, processes, and applications through products and projects. In-depth consideration of topics and concepts beyond requirements is academically accelerated. Interdisciplinary units, literary and informational texts, genres, speaking, and writing opportunities strive to promote experiences to extend learning, increase student achievement through the acquisition of enhanced thinking and problem-solving skills, promote acceleration and enrichment of gifted students using investigative and shared inquiry skills, and promote the individual pursuit of special interests and development of academic talents.
