Is your child a rapid learner who puts thoughts together quickly?

Does your child have an excellent memory or an unusually large vocabulary?

Does your child have an advanced comprehension of word nuances, metaphors and abstract ideas?

If so, the district’s Extended Learning Program may be a good fit for your child.

The district has designed and implemented an Extended Learning Program to meet the cognitive and affective needs of identified gifted students.
