Definition of Giftedness
Giftedness is an unusually advanced degree of general intellectual ability. Differentiated learning experiences offer a depth and breadth beyond those normally provided in regular school programs. Programming for gifted students is an attempt to satisfy high level educational potential as determined by formal testing.
*A regular school curriculum does not and cannot fully accommodate to the characteristics and needs of gifted students*
