Middle School (Grades 6-8)
As students transition from elementary to middle school, identified G/T students are served through academic core courses:
English Language Arts & Reading
LEAP classes offer students a specialized thematic curriculum designed for G/T learners that integrates a focus on Humanities, grade level learning standards, G/T capacities, and Kaplan's Depth and Complexity.
G/T Science classes integrate grade level standards, increased pacing opportunities, curriculum compacting, and enrichment activities to meet the needs of gifted learners.
G/T students in Honors Math classes are offered the opportunities for accelerated learning and collaboration with G/T peers. G/T students taking Honor Math are clustered (groups of 5 or more) during scheduling.
If a dedicated G/T course does not meet minimum enrollment requirements, the G/T students will be clustered in the corresponding Honors course offering.
In addition to these course offerings, middle school G/T students develop personalized service plans in order to learn the importance of setting goals, internalize their current self and design who they want to become through setting academic and/or personal growth goals aiming for heightened self-awareness and whole child growth.
