Academically Talented

Our Academically Talented Program services selected students in grades 3-5.  Students meet in peer groups, where they are offered small group instruction and opportunities to challenge and learn from each other.  

 The goals of the Academically Talented Program are as follows:

1. To engage in a curriculum of depth and breadth that will stimulate critical thinking, develop comprehension of complex concepts, and give emphasis to the connections within, between, and across disciplines.

2. To involve academically talented students in challenging learning experiences that are not ordinarily included in the general classroom and afford them the opportunity to engage in intellectual stimulation from contact with other highly motivated students.

3. To create a learning atmosphere that will enable the academically talented child to develop critical thinking, creative thinking, and communication skills (visual, oral, written).

4. To assist students in becoming independent learners who are able to take self-initiated action, accept responsibility for that action, and make intelligent choices.
