Gifted & Talented
PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT: GIFTED AND TALENTED
As part of the MSAD# 27 commitment to quality education for each student, we recognize the need for a program that will actively address the needs of the gifted and talented population, kindergarten through grade 12.
Although all able students benefit from a variety of enrichment activities, gifted and talented students, in order to develop more fully, need to be identified and provided special programming options.
We believe that approximately three percent of our students have the potential to excel beyond their age peers in the regular classroom.
As such, they require differentiated educational experiences, aligned with the Common Core. Their program must proceed along a developmental continuum that enables and encourages them to become independent learners.
