Our Magnet Program
The Gifted & Talented Program is based on the belief that every child has gifts and talents to be valued and nurtured. The child, teacher and parent all work together to choose courses and customize the ideal educational program. Children explore a wide variety of learning experiences through core and elective courses that develop their individual strengths and interests. Students who are academically gifted, learning disabled, and/or who have other unique needs, work with specialized teachers as part of their elective classes. There are no tests, auditions or performance standards required for acceptance into the Gifted & Talented Program.
Students spend three periods each day in the core areas of language arts, mathematics, and science or social studies. 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 year long, semester, and/or quarterly basis. A student can have the potential to take up to twelve different electives per year.
