We have two different programs to support our academically talented students. Our philosophy in the elementary grades (3-4) is that we want to nurture potential. Our evaluation process is designed to identify unique or isolated areas of giftedness and the program works to turn this potential into academic achievement. Once students reach fifth grade, the emphasis shifts to achievement and the selection process changes. See the links to the right for a more complete explanation of the screening and identification process. We have also added links if you want to read more about some of the screening tools we use.
