Decatur Public Schools

GIFTED AND TALENTED EDUCATION PROGRAM

Vision Statement

Our vision is to be an exemplary gifted program, to advocate for, inspire, and meet the educational, social, and emotional needs of our students.

Philosophy

The Decatur School District recognizes the special needs associated with exceptional talent and/or giftedness. The program’s comprehensive design will provide opportunities for gifted learners to receive special educational services that cannot be met in the regular classroom.

The GT program will enable gifted students to grow towards achieving their full potential as learners and as people. The GT program aims to support and challenge students, while giving them the opportunity to work and interact with their intellectual peers.
