The high school gifted program continues to encourage the gifted students to challenge themselves and to become self-motivated learners.  Each gifted student actively participates in the selection of his/her goals and objectives for the Gifted Individualized Education Program (GIEP).  Each students identified needs determine the level of intervention.  Through monthly meetings, a GATE period and pull-out sessions, the students are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities to sharpen various skills including communication and leadership. 

    

In addition, each students individual skills and talents are fostered through the many academic programs options offered in a variety of environments in and outside of the school setting.  These options may range from honors and advanced placement classes to special interest seminars, academic competitions, career studies, apprenticeships and independent projects.  In the regular education classroom, the gifted students will experience differentiated instruction that is tailored to meet their educational needs.
