Why Gifted Learners Need a GT Program

Gifted & talented students require continued ability-appropriate challenges in the classroom in order to thrive. Without new challenges and intellectual stimulation, these students will become bored and disinterested in classes that are too easy for them. 

Gifted students also require a curriculum that will meet their social-emotional needs. Without this support, students are likely to struggle both socially and academically down the line. By meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of gifted students, the GT Center Program gives them the tools they need for future success.
