Gifted and Talented Program
What defines a child as gifted?
According to New York state law, gifted and talented children are defined as "pupils who show evidence of high performances capability and exceptional potential in areas such as general intellectual ability, special academic aptitude and outstanding ability in visual and performing arts. Such definition shall include those pupils who require educational programs or services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their full potential."
The Gifted and Talented program at Arthur O. Eve School of Distinction will mold students to become creative and critical thinkers through programming designed to ensure the continuous development of advanced learners. Gifted and Talented (GT) education will provide appropriate differentiated instruction for gifted learners which will enable them to reach their maximum potential.
