    Gifted & Advanced Programs 

    Welcome to the Gifted Education Program at Gum Springs Elementary!  We are looking forward to a great year of learning and fun with your child.   Our goal at GSES is to do as much as we can to meet the specific learning needs of each student, which includes providing quality support services for gifted and advanced learners.  We have established teams of teachers at each grade level who will be working together to plan meaningful lessons and activities for your child this year.  Our goals this year include

    • Designing activities and assignments that promote problem solving and higher-order thinking
    • Creating opportunities to learn more about research and investigation
    • Exploring ways that creative thinkers work and grow
    • Developing communication skills through writing, oral presentation, and the use of new technologies
    • Providing opportunities for students to develop independence and explore self-directed learning skills
    • Learning how to embrace challenges and productive struggle
    • Creating assignments that are academically rigorous

    We are here to advocate for your child and support his/her learning needs. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We are excited about working with your child and getting to know your family this year!
