Gifted & Talented Program


 

Gifted & Talented Program

   Forestburg ISD is committed to meeting the needs of all students.

 

    Our students have many gifts and talents ranging from academics to performance arts and athletics. The Gifted & Talented Program is designed to address the advanced academic and creative needs of our Gifted and Talented students.

   As a school, we are committed to recognizing GT students and then providing them with classes that meet their academic needs, nurture and encourage their interest in fine arts and athletics and foster a lifelong love of learning.

 

Elementary Services (grades K-4)

   GT Pull-Out Classes allow students the opportunity to express themselves academically and creatively. The Texas Performance Standards Project, www.texaspsp.org is used as a guide for independent study projects, while technology based instruction is used in group settings to encourage higher order thinking.

 

Middle School/ Junior High Services (grades 5-8)

   GT students receive services during their Academic Enrichment Class period with a GT-Certified Teacher. The class is built into the weekly schedule to allow the GT-Certified Teacher to coordinate with general education teachers on interdisciplinary, independent and group study units. In these classes, students work on projects in advanced technology studies as well as creative group projects. The Texas Performance Standards Project, www.texaspsp.org is used as a guide for independent study projects.

 

High School Services (grades 9-12)

   GT services at the high school level prepare students for college-level work. GT students receive services during their Academic Enrichment Class period with a GT-Certified Teacher. The class is built into the weekly schedule, to allow the GT-certified teacher to coordinate with general education teachers on interdisciplinary, independent and group study units. In these classes, students work on projects in advanced technology studies and creative endeavors designed to challenge young minds. The Texas Performance Standards Project, www.texaspsp.org is used as a guide for independent study projects.

 

GT students are encouraged to graduate from FISD with the highest diploma a high school student can earn. 

 

GT students have the option to take Weighted Honors Courses and Independent Study Classes. Junior and Senior GT students may also enroll in Dual Enrollment through North Central Texas College earning both high school and college credit with one class.
