MBES Gifted Program:
We offer on-site, part-time gifted services to all eligible students at McMullen Booth Elementary. Students are pulled out for 3-5 hours per week to work with a gifted endorsed teacher and gifted peers. Curriculum focuses on critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, social-emotional growth, and high-level content as a vehicle to work on the Florida gifted goals. Gifted teachers also work with classroom teachers to ensure that their gifted students are being challenged in their general education classroom.
