Gifted students in District 833 are those able learners who by virtue of outstanding abilities are capable of high performance. The potential of these able learners may be developed more fully through differentiated educational programs and/or services beyond those normally provided in the core curriculum.  Able learners capable of high performance include those with demonstrated achievements or potential ability in any of the following areas, singly or in combination:  general intellectual ability, specific academic aptitude, athletic/psychomotor ability, creative or productive thinking, leadership ability, visual and performing arts.

All District 833 schools have Gifted Education services. We use a Cluster Classroom Model to develop the potential of gifted learners more fully.  Please click on the link below for more information about neighborhood school cluster classrooms and Gateway cluster classrooms.
