Gifted and Talented instruction is provided to students who are identified in grades Kindergarten through grade eight.
~Grade Levels K & 1~
Teachers address the needs of students who are identified as gifted learners in Kindergarten and Grade 1 by differentiated instruction in the classroom, as well as incorporating higher level thinking skills and activities. These students are challenged in a general classroom setting, as they expand upon their intellectual curiosity.
~Grade Levels 2-6~
Our gifted learners in Grade 2 through Grade 6 are in a pull-out program. Students meet with the Gifted and Talented teacher in small group settings that promote cross-curricular activities, higher level thinking, problem solving skills, and application of concepts.
~Grade Levels 7 & 8~
Our identified gifted students in Grade 7 and Grade 8 are addressed in Honors classes in both ELA and Mathematics. Each year students are considered for these Honors classes. The courses offered are Honors ELA 7, Honors ELA 8, Pre-Algebra (7th) and Algebra 1 (8th). These courses are designed with more rigor and move at a quicker pace than the general ELA and Mathematic courses do.
These services are offered each year, continually, once the student has been indentified and enrolled in the program.
