Program Philosophy

The gifted program is based on the Schoolwide Enrichment Model developed by Joseph Renzulli. The model systematically assesses strengths, provides enrichment opportunities and services, and utilizes a flexible approach to identification for the varied programs and services offered. Identification is based on the belief that gifted behavior consists of three attributes: above average ability, high levels of task commitment, and elevated levels of creativity. Students who manifest these traits require a variety of educational opportunities and services.
