MAGNET PATHWAYS AND THEMES
Gifted and TalentedThe Gifted & Talented (GT) Program recognizes that all students possess gifts and talents. The program mission is to explore, develop, and nurture these qualities through challenging academic and artistic experiences encountered in a variety of electives. In addition to the four core subjects, students take three electives daily per quarter.
During their three elective periods students explore new areas of interest or study a particular area in depth. This allows students time to hone their talents, or explore new areas of interest. Elective courses are offered on a yearlong, semester, and quarter basis; therefore, a student has the potential to take up to twelve different electives per year.
