PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

 

Kindergarten – Second Grade: Whole Group Enrichment Program

The G/T Teacher designs whole group enrichment lessons emphasizing creativity, problem solving, logic, and critical/reflective thinking. All K-2 students receive weekly enrichment lessons.

Third Grade – Sixth Grade: Pull-out Classes

The G/T Teacher designs small group lessons for students identified as gifted and talented. Students meet in small groups for a minimum of 150 minutes per week. Lessons are designed with the G/T Standards as a foundation and the student’s interests and needs as inspiration. The small group interaction is designed to meet the student’s social and emotional needs while the curriculum offers enrichment.

Seventh Grade – Twelfth Grade: Pre-AP/AP, and Monthly Meetings

Pre-AP - students of high ability are placed in a class in which the curriculum focuses on higher levels of thinking and complexity therefore avoiding "more of the same". The Pre-AP curriculum is designed to prepare students for AP classes.

AP - students have the opportunity to pursue college-level studies while still in secondary school and to receive advanced placement credit, upon entering college.

Concurrent Credit – students have the opportunity to receive both high school and college credit.

Monthly Meetings - students will meet once a month individually/or as a group with the HIGATE teacher to discuss educational opportunities and/or scholarships.
