NCS Gifted and Talented Program

In grades K-2 we implement a "push in" method where our Gifted & Talented teacher visits each class in each grade level once a week providing an enrichment activity to all students. The teacher takes anecdotal notes noting students' multiple intelligences and higher level thinking skills to help prepare future lessons that are meaningful and relevant to the learners.

In grades 3-8 we implement a "pull out" method. Students are accepted into the program based on multiple measures criteria. We accept the top 5-10% of the students to participate in this program. The gifted and talented teachers (one for grades 3 & 4 and another for grades 5 through 8) meet with the students in small groups between 1-2 times per week. They participate in project based learning that is chosen by the student then customized for each based on their interests and ability levels.
