Vision Statement
  • Gifted students, like all students, deserve an educational program as closely adapted to their needs as possible.  We recognize our obligation to hold them to the highest standards they are capable of achieving and to recognize the unique talents and needs of each individual in a diverse gifted population. 

  • We believe in striking a balance between the creative, open-ended learning activities from which gifted students benefit, and the more structured activities necessary to equip students with the skills essential for academic success.
