Gifted Program


  KIDS -- Kids Inventing, Discovering, Searching


Although a student may be gifted in many areas, the Blair Oaks School District has designed its enrichment program for elementary students who are academically talented or gifted. A gifted person is someone who shows, or has the potential for showing, an exceptional level of performance in one or more areas of expression. The term giftedness provides a general reference to this spectrum of abilities without being specific or dependent on a single measure or index. It is generally recognized that approximately five percent of the student population are considered gifted.
