Gifted and talented education opens windows of opportunity for students to enhance their potential through collaboration, innovation, and problem solving. All students are challenged to engage in inquiry, take intellectual risks, exercise critical thinking, and reflect upon and develop their individual talents.
Tenafly Public Schools believes that all students benefit from higher level thinking and inquiry. The Schoolwide Enrichment Model, in-class differentiation, and push-in enrichment provide challenging opportunities that focus on public speaking, mathematical thinking, creative problem solving, philosophical discourse, and STEAM. A continuum of services that matches a student’s needs in their academic areas of strength and support for social and emotional development for gifted learners will be provided on an as-needed basis and may change annually. We annually assess which students at each grade level need modifications to the delivery of curriculum and instruction to match their learning levels as well as to address their social and emotional needs.
In Spring 2021, we are modifying the Discovery Program. Multiple measures will be analyzed to identify the students in our district who need gifted education services. By the end of the 2020-2021 school year, we will share the Discovery Program plans for 2021-2022.
