Goal #2: To establish a climate that reflects the value of gifted students while enhancing their intellectual ability, creativity, talent, and decision making.
Goal #3: To encourage and provide units of study that develops higher-level thinking and expands these skills in analysis, synthesis, and evaluation along with the provision of using them.
