Martin Gifted and Talented Magnet Middle School, a Magnet Schools of America, School of Distinction.

The body of curriculum at Martin GT Magnet Middle School is based on the belief that all students possess gifts and talents that need to be identified, valued, nurtured, and rewarded. Martin offers an innovative approach to education by blending core academic studies with a wide variety of elective courses. Electives enhance and enrich the core studies curricula.

The gifted and talented program at Martin offers electives in math, science, social studies, language arts, technology, art, music, drama, dance, career and technical education, foreign language, media, and physical education.

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 year-long, semester, or quarter basis; therefore, a student has the potential to take up to twelve different electives per year.

All students receive differentiated educational services in the four core areas of instruction: Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. In many of the elective programs, classes are structured so that a student has opportunities from the beginning level, all the way to an advance level of study.

The Gifted and Talented program addresses the gifts and talents of all students so there are NO performance measures, auditions, or tests that must be passed before a student is accepted into the school.

At Martin Magnet Middle School, you can "Dream It - Achieve It!".

Curriculum: Gifted & Talented

The GT Program offers an extensive elective menu for exploration of interests, acceleration, and rich, in-depth study in all subject areas to enhance Common Core and Essential Standards. Parents and students select courses from a diverse menu of elective offerings each quarter. For example, a child who is gifted in math may be challenged in an academically gifted math elective or a child who is artistic has opportunities to take dance or music electives. World Language instruction and expanded visual and performing arts opportunities are available K-12 with extensive AP and IB course offerings in high school.
