GT Program Information
The Gifted/Talented Program is designed for students, children, or youth who give evidence of high achievement capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic fields, and who need services and activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop those capabilities.
 
Services are provided only upon identification of education needs of the student.
