Gifted and Talented Curriculum
Our highly professional staff uses a variety of techniques, strategies, and activities to heighten our gifted and talented students' ability to think – to reason. We use Bloom’s Taxonomy, Sternberg’s Creative, Analytical and Practical Theory of Reasoning, and Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences to guide instruction in gifted and talented education.
Each strand of the framework is not taught in isolation. We recognize the complexity of the thinking processes. We also believe that when students make personal connections with the curriculum, their learning becomes authentic/real.
Our curriculum framework is designed to develop the intellect, and intra and interpersonal social/emotional development. Through curricular experiences, it is our hope that students learn the value of becoming life long learners and citizens of character.
Unique high level curricular extensions heighten the High Ability Learners' understanding of problem solving processes.
Students are taught an established structure of research. From kindergarten through grade six, students develop their ability to apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate knowledge acquired through research.
