Program Vision

Gifted students will demonstrate the traits of a scholar and develop a love for learning while engaging in differentiated curriculum and instruction to become analytical thinkers, creative producers, and problem solvers.

Program Goals

We will provide learning experiences that are responsive to the cognitive, creative, and affective development of gifted students by applying educational theory and research based models of culturally relevant curriculum and instruction designed to ensure specific student outcomes.
