About the Gifted Program

undefined

 

The Bossier Parish Gifted Program, sometimes referred to as AIM (Activating Inquisitive Minds), is a special program designed to serve the upper three percent of students from pre-school to grade twelve who have been identified as gifted through evaluation in accordance with the criteria stated in the Pupil Appraisal Handbook (Bulletin 1706) of the State Department of Education. The program is designed to provide learning experiences that will extend and enhance those skills taught by the regular classroom teacher. The curriculum offers stimulating challenges through group/individual projects, creative and critical thinking activities, and leadership opportunities. The elementary gifted program is an enrichment pull-out model which will broaden the parish content curriculum. The middle school gifted program offers a content-based Language Arts curriculum that is a daily part of the regular school program. High school gifted students are offered a choice of programs in which to participate. They may choose dual enrollment at Bossier Parish Community College, the gifted elective class on their high school campus, and/or the Independent Project option.
