Activities vary and include subject areas of language arts, math, science, social studies and art. The program focuses on reading, writing, listening and speaking. Higher level thinking is incorporated into all activities.

- Grades 6-8 Program:
Gifted services continue in grades 6-8. Departmental teachers provide differentiation and curriculum compacting strategies for gifted students. Both can be used successfully in heterogeneous classrooms and with almost any subject matter. Compacting allows teachers to use pre-testing to move gifted students through material they already know and on to curriculum extensions that interest them and still meet academic standards.

Curriculum extensions are a form of differentiation and accommodate gifted students' ability to learn new material at a much faster rate than their peers as well as allowing them to pursue their interests within a unit of study. Study guides are used. The gifted coordinator consults and plans with classroom teachers at all grade levels.

- Gifted Education Program:

The purpose of Gifted Education is to recognize the unique social, emotional, and intellectual needs of gifted and talented students, and provide them with stimulating and challenging opportunities, and enable them to realize their greatest potential and contribute to self and society.
