Gifted & Talented

Advanced Learning Department


To recognize and nurture exceptional abilities of all gifted and talented students to foster higher-level, creative, and productive thinking and healthy affective qualities.


 In pursuit of gifted learners of all backgrounds reaching their fullest potential, we envision learning environments that build capacity for positive engagement, self-awareness, and self-advocacy in order for students to drive their own intellectual and affective growth.


  • Gifted abilities exist and should be identified and served in students of all ages from all cultures, races, ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic groups.

  • Gifted learners have unique strengths and needs that must be addressed.

  • Cognitive development is enhanced within social and emotional wellness.

  • Learners should be active participants and share the responsibility for maximizing the learning opportunities provided.

  • District and school administration, teachers, families, and the community share the responsibility to provide relevant and challenging opportunities to develop the individual potential of gifted learners.
