The Gifted Education Program in Mississippi defines intellectually gifted children as those children and youth who are found to have an exceptional high degree of intelligence as documented through the identification process.
The Gifted Education Program is designed to meet the indivudal needs of gifted children. The gifted-education program enchances an individual student's experiences by utilizing: higher-level thinking skills, problem solving, critical thinking skills, research skills, personal growth and human relations experiences, leadership sills, and creative expression.
Student interest surveys and learning style inventories are given at the beginning of the school year. Student data is collected and used to design units and to explore the interests of students. Below you will get a glimpse of how these outcomes are being addressed and what goes on in Quest! Happy Scrolling!
