  • Welcome to Advanced Academics and Talent Development

    The advanced academics curriculum encompasses literature, mathematics, research skills, creative and critical thinking, growth mindset and goal-setting, and social/emotional learning. We strive to build these skills through both collaborative and independent activities. The curriculum also fosters communication skills, use of technology, and presenting synthesized information. 

    We are pleased to announce that this year Anona will continue to offer our Talent Development program. The Talent Development program provides differentiated enrichment for students who have shown above-average abilities and talents who are not currently identified as gifted in grades 2-5. This program exposes talented learners to the gifted and talented pedagogy in order to increase critical thinking skills. 

    At Anona, we offer daily gifted services, so that students do not miss core content from their general education classroom. This schedule allows gifted to be an active part of the students' day and creates better continuity within the gifted curriculum.

    Daily schedule:

    1st Grade Advanced Academics 9:00-9:30
    4th Grade Advanced Academics 9:35-10:25
