The qualities and abilities of gifted children create special needs. The Gifted and Talented program recognizes these qualities and attempts to meet the unique needs of gifted learners and is designed to enhance their social, intellectual, and personal needs. Strategies appropriate and essential for the gifted are implemented in each class in order to provide learners with the opportunity to reach their academic potential.
Gifted and Talented students are those who perform at or show the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who exhibit high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area, possess an usual capacity for leadership, and/or excel in a specific academic field. Gifted and Talented students are also defined as those who excel in their ability to think, reason, judge, invent, or create to the degree that they need special facilities and/or educational services in order that they may have the opportunity to achieve their potential while making increased meaningful contributions to society.
