Office of Gifted and Talented Education Beliefs

We believe our students…
• are found in the areas of intellectual ability, academics, creativity, performing/visual arts, and leadership.
• are found in all cultures.
• include students with learning disabilities (twice-exceptional [2E]).

Gifted and Talented students have the right to…
… learn something new everyday
… not be gifted in everything
… feel proud of their accomplishments
… be passionate about their talents
… be educated about their abilities and talents
… interact with like ability peers
… be stimulated with rigorous and challenging instruction.
