Gifted students in District 833 are those learners who by virtue of outstanding abilities are capable of high performance when compared to others of similar age, experience, or environment, and represent the diverse populations of our communities. The potential of these learners may be developed more fully through differentiated educational programs and/or services beyond those normally provided in the core curriculum.  It is important to note that not all gifted children look or act alike. Giftedness exists in every personality type, demographic group and segment of society.

All District 833 schools have Gifted Education services. Please explore Gifted Services Elementary and Gifted Services Secondary for more information about how we use Levels of Service and Cluster Classrooms to develop the potential of gifted learners more fully.

 


 

U.S. Academic Triathlon

Is your child an “outside-the-box” thinker? Does he/she love trivia and thinking on his/her feet? Do you have a budding actor on your hands? U.S. Academic Triathlon may be the perfect opportunity to channel those qualities. A.T. is an after school, volunteer run adventure.

MCGT CHAT Events

CHAT stands for Connect, Help, Advocate, and Talk. Hosted by the Minnesota Council for the Gifted & Talented (MCGT), CHAT nights are dedicated to informally connecting parents of advanced learners and gifted students. Parents have the opportunity to learn of various opportunities, share experiences and resources. Each night will start with a brief presentation on a topic of interest and then open up to discussion with other parents of gifted children. 

These events are open to the public. Questions about CHAT Nights may be directed to Teresa Boatman at teresa.boatman@mcgt.net.
