Gifted &  Talented

Our Gifted and Talented Program provides challenging, exciting and standards-based instructional practices. Our program engages students who exhibit strong social and leadership qualities, a sound understanding of academics and creative talent via the arts. This program begins in kindergarten and continues through grade 5 as long as the child performs on a satisfactory level. Our students study via our regular school wide curriculum on an accelerated level that is specific to their learning needs. All children in this program receive enrichment activities that are self -selected throughout the course of the school year. This is a district -based program.
  • Our school community is housed in a community that has been changing for over fifteen years to becoming a increasing diverse school community.
