Gifted and Talented Services
Students identified for G/T services are assured an array of learning opportunities, including working with age peers, intellectual peers and working independently, during the school day and through co-curricular or extracurricular activities. Grade appropriate research skills are incorporated in the curriculum through open-ended assignments, providing a continuum of learning experiences that lead to the development of advanced-level products and/or performances. The state developed gifted and talented curriculum, the Texas Performance Standards Project, is a series of vertically aligned, open-ended research projects that culminate in the development of advanced level products and oral and written presentations.
At the secondary level, participation in Pre-AP, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Dual Credit courses offer students the depth and complexity of college level course work. Participation in each of these programs offers opportunities for students to earn college credit while enrolled in high school.
Through extracurricular and co-curricular activities, students are afforded additional opportunities to explore and enhance their strengths and interests.
