SECONDARY CAMPUSES

Secondary GT services include instruction by a teacher with the appropriate GT Foundations training within a Pre-AP, Advanced Placement, Magnet, International Baccaulearate (IB), Dual Credit, or advanced-level CTE courses for which teachers have received specialized training. Acceleration provides GT students with a choice of concentrating on their strengths or interests through the selection of at least one course in the GT interdisciplinary strands of STEM and/or Humanities for which they are identified each school year. Academic options provided vary based on campus and teacher decisions. Teachers and counselors provide guidance during the course selection process (grades 5-11) for the next school year.
