Gifted & Talented

Welcome to the Jeffco Gifted and Talented Program

 We are focused on Actualizing Learners' Potential for gifted and high-ability learners in Jeffco Public Schools.

We believe all students deserve an education that will provide meaningful growth academically, socially and emotionally. See our Definition of a GT Student and our Board Policy on Gifted Education.


New to GT?

If your child was recently identified or you just want a GT introduction, visit our GT 101 page for basic information about giftedness, including resources, links, and an overview of information.

GT Identification and Transfer Students
