Gifted Program

  • At Skycrest we have a part-time gifted teacher, Ms. Salazar, on campus.  After students are identified as gifted, they attend a full day of gifted instruction outside the regular classroom.  

    For the new 2022-2023 school year, our gifted students will be clustered in their homeroom class and then go to gifted on their designated day.  

    This year's theme:  TBD

    The Center for Gifted Studies is designed to meet the unique academic and social/emotional needs of gifted adolescent students. A challenging and rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum is delivered through instructional strategies that promote creative, critical, and complex thinking. Personal strengths and interests are developed through differentiated instruction, independent study, and extracurricular activities. Inquiry and investigation are used as students address relevant, real-world problems.
