• Gifted Curriculum

    A differentiated curriculum is provided for students in the gifted program. The program in the elementary grades and for some middle schools is one of enrichment. These students participate in a pull-out program one day per week. All other students receive services in a class or in classes for particular subjects.

    All curriculum contains:

    1. Content that is compacted and accelerated in such a way that the amount of time usually involved in mastery is significantly reduced;

    2. Content that reflects a higher degree of complexity, emphasizes abstract concepts, and develops higher-level thinking processes than does content
      found in regular coursework;

    3. Content that goes beyond the prescribed curriculum to involve the application of learning to areas of greater challenge and;

    4. Multi-disciplinary content that increases students’ abilities to formulate and test new generalizations and/or products.
