Does SKTCS offer a gifted program?
At SKTCS, we believe that all students have a right to educational experiences that challenge their individual development whether it is below, at, or beyond the level of their classroom peers. Following this philosophy, SKTCS makes provisions for the special needs of gifted and talented learners within their everyday learning environment. Through our problem-based learning approach, students engage in class projects that challenge them on an individual level based on their academic abilities and interests. We believe that all of our students should have differentiated educational services throughout the day, within all instruction areas and within their classroom. Accordingly, all SKTCS students identified as gifted will be taught by teachers endorsed in gifted instruction.
