Academically Talented Belief Statements
• We believe that a student’s talents and gifts manifest themselves in multiple ways across all cultural and economic strata and at different times during a student’s academic journey.
• We believe that all students should be educated and nurtured in a climate where their talents and potential are valued and fostered.
• We believe that all students should be supported and challenged by a program of study with rigorous and relevant curriculum so that students can achieve at levels commensurate with their intellect and ability and reach their full potential.
• We believe that all students who exhibit exceptional intellect or who perform, or have demonstrated the potential to perform, at superior levels when compared to others of their age, experience, and/or environment in academic disciplines should have advanced learning opportunities available to them.
