What is Gifted & Talented?

"Gifted and talented children and youth are those students with outstanding abilities, identified at preschool, elementary, and secondary levels.  The potential of gifted students requires differentiated and challenging educational programs and/or services beyond those provided in the general school program.  Students capable of high performance include those with demonstrated achievement or potential ability in any one or more of the following areas:  general intellect, specific academic subjects, creativity, leadership, and visual and performing arts."
