Gifted and Talented

Each one, uniquely gifted

Elm Street School recognizes that each child has a variety of unique gifts, talents and abilities. We understand that everyone benefits when we accommodate individual differences. Our gifted and talented program provides appropriate educational opportunities for students who need a differentiated educational program.

Elm Street School offers a differentiated educational program to each child with an identified need, catering to the strengths and weaknesses of every student and allowing them to progress at their own educational rate, regardless of chronological age and grade placement. Differentiation will likely be in the classroom, but acceleration, enrichment and talent-specific mentoring may also be used. We want all the children at Elm Street to excel, but also to be curious, stretch themselves, and look beyond academic boundaries to the wealth of human achievement and experience.
