The Gifted and Talented program is designed to meet the developmental needs of the students as they progress throughout the grades.
Kindergarten – Second Grade
All students in Kindergarten through second grade attend an Enrichment class under the direction of the GT teacher. The GT teacher develops creative thinking, deductive and inductive reasoning and questioning. This class is scheduled once a week. In addition, identified students receive differentiated assignments from their homeroom teacher.
Third – Sixth Grade
Students who meet the criteria for GT in grades three through sixth grade participate in a pull-out program where selected students work with the GT teacher on projects. Students use a project-based learning model to extend and enhance objectives. Students research selected topics, think critically about learned information and expand their thinking skills.
Seventh – Twelfth Grade
Students now receive numerous options based on interest and skill. Any enrolled student who meets the criteria for each selected course may take Accelerated, Honors, Advanced Placement and/or elective classes. Each of these classes has its own entrance requirements, curriculum and assessment practices.
