Gifted and Talented

Columbus ISD believes that all students are entitled to a productive and equitable learning environment, where identified gifted and talented learners are challenged beyond the foundations already created in classroom settings. The Gifted and Talented Program is designed to encourage students to use problem solving skills and foster real world applications across multiple subject areas. Differentiation for gifted learners will occur in the classroom, offering different content, process, and products for these learners. Gifted students’ social and emotional needs should also be addressed as they may develop in different ways than their peers.
