Gifted - Enrichment

  • The Calhoun County School System’s gifted program includes the exploration of topics not ordinarily emphasized in the regular curriculum. Gifted students receive training in cognitive and affective process skills and participate in opportunities for student investigation of real problems. The program provides the least restrictive outlets for meeting the individual needs of students who are exhibiting characteristics such as:

    1. Above average ability

    2. Task commitment

    3. Creative behavior

    DEFINITION: Intellectually gifted children and youth are those who perform or have the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Children and youth possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.
