The gifted education program's vision is to provide a differentiated curriculum for academically gifted students in the areas of thinking, performance, research skills, and effective awareness necessary to meet their needs.
Gifted education provides interventions to accommodate the child's passion for learning and their need for creative expression. Students will be immersed in a rigorous and relevant curriculum delivered in an innovative, flexible, and supportive instructional environment.
Differentiation in curricula, instruction, and assessments will
- stimulate and challenge our gifted students to expand their intellectual horizons,
- emphasize advanced, conceptually challenging, in-depth, distinctive, and complex content,
- be specific to individual student's assessed levels and accelerated rates of learning
Gifted students will become analytical thinkers, creative producers, and practical problem solvers. Students will also develop and demonstrate personal confidence and personal responsibility.
