Skycrest 2020-2021 Gifted Program


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

    For the new 2020-2021 school year, our gifted students will be clustered in the their homeroom class and then go to gifted on their designated day.  The teachers who have the gifted students will also be earning the Micro-Gifted Credential from Pinellas County Schools.

    The Center for Gifted Studies is designed to meet the unique academic and social/emotional needs of adolescent gifted 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.
