Gifted Program

About Our Program

We provide appropriate educational services for students who are identified as gifted students. Our goal is to identify students with high potential and exceptional performance and to offer challenges that match those strengths. Children need a school environment that helps them realize their potential and instills in them a desire to use their talents and abilities. Students who perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment have learning needs which require differentiated learning experiences. Use the links to the right to learn more about Gifted Education.
