Philosophy of Gifted Education

The Two Rivers School District is committed to an educational program for the Gifted/Talented learners, recognizing individual student differences, abilities, interests, and needs. The gifted program provides opportunities for enhanced, differentiated instruction for students at the upper end of the ability continuum who display gifts and talents in academic achievement as well as other performance dimensions. Our goal is to help Gifted/Talented learners maximize their high potential through an effective program. Using a multi-dimensional teaching approach, emphasis is placed on learning processes involving the cognitive and affective domains enabling the identified students to become intellectually and creatively productive adults.
