Elementary Level

Concepts and activities are extended to provide enrichment. The curriculum in kindergarten through grade 2 focuses primarily on creative thinking and problem-solving. In grades 3 and 4, the program provides acceleration and in-depth study in thematic units with emphasis on creative thinking, global thinking development and individual research skills, scientific problem solving, and decision-making. The students explore a variety of sources of information as they learn to collect and organize data. The instructional program allows gifted children at a given grade level to work together on a specific activity for several days during a grading period. These activities are cross-curricular and encourage creativity and problem-solving.
