Devinny Elementary Gifted Center Program Goals:

  1. The development of a clear understanding of fundamental academic concepts and their application.
  2. The opportunity to interact on a regular basis with a peer group of similar learners.
  3. The development of self-efficacy and understanding.  In support of this, students are expected to master the basic skills and factual information related to the core areas of study: mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies.  This knowledge base underlies interdisciplinary unites which the students explore.

The Gifted Center Student Experience:

      GT Center students have a homeroom class with like minded peers.  The homeroom class is together for
      most of their core classes but can also be flexibly grouped into other classrooms that best meet their
      needs.  
They attend Music, Art, P.E., and lunch with mixed classes of their grade level 
      peers. Fifth grade students may participate in Band and Orchestra which is held twice a week for a 40 
      minute period. Devinny GT Center students participate in all other grade level activities including field 
      trips and in-school programs.
