Gifted/Talented Program
Program Overview: The Gifted and Talented Program of Charleston serves students in grades K-12. In grades K-2, enrichment activities designed to introduce and develop skills beyond the basic curriculum are provided for all students. Identification for our pullout program begins in 3rd grade. Identified students in grades 3-4 are served in a pullout resource room setting with a scheduled weekly period of 150 minutes. Students in grades 5-8 receive enrichment from their highly qualified teachers. Students in grades 9-12 may choose from a wide variety of enrichment activities involving higher level thinking skills and problem solving strategies, such as Pre-AP, AP, and concurrent college level courses. Students in grades 5-12 also participate in monthly meetings during lunch to discuss personal goals and community activities. What is Giftedness? Students show giftedness when their ability is significantly above the norm for their age. Giftedness may manifest in one or more of the following domains: intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership, or in a specific academic field such as language arts, mathematics, or science. It is difficult to estimate the absolute number of gifted children in the U.S. because the calculation is dependent on the number of areas and the method used to identify gifted children.  However, many consider children who are in the top 10 percent in relation to a national and/or local norm to be a good guide for identification and services.   It is important to note that not all gifted children look or act alike. Giftedness exists in every demographic group and personality type.  It is important that adults look hard to discover potential and support gifted children as they reach for their personal best.
Referrals How do I refer a student for the Gifted and Talented Program? Pick up a referral form at the elementary, middle, or high school offices.  Please return it by the end of September for the fall semester testing cycle or the end of February for the spring semester testing cycle.  If you have questions regarding the referral process, please contact Mrs. White.
