What is a Gifted Center?
The needs of advanced learners are mainly addressed at each neighborhood school. Jefferson County also offers an optional program, the Gifted Center, for highly academic students who are identified as Gifted.
In existence since 1984, Gifted Centers are housed in regular school settings and provide full-time educational experiences. Instruction involves acceleration, enrichment, and attention to affective needs. Instruction is based on various formal and informal data to assure that the needs of the students are met.
