Mission/Vision 
The mission of our gifted programming is to provide identified students with rigorous, engaging and challenging educational opportunities which are responsive to their individual strengths and needs so that they will achieve academic and personal growth commensurate with their abilities. 

Programming Overview 
Gifted education programming includes a range and variety of options to address student needs. Programming is adaptable to the resources within our district and may be delivered within the student's regular classroom, in classrooms at other schools and/or in special classes. Programming is linked to identified student strengths, with options and strategies matched to the identified academic and affective needs of students. Programming options for gifted students fall in the four categories shown below. Each identifies programming strategies that may be used to meet students' needs.
