The purpose of the Social Circle City Schools Gifted Program is to provide students in grades kindergarten through twelve, who demonstrate a high degree of intellectual, academic, creative, and/or artistic ability with differentiated services to address their exceptionalities.
The curricula for gifted students align the gifted education goals with the current Georgia standards. Curriculum objectives focus on developing cognitive learning, research and reference, and meta-cognitive skills at each grade grouping, using principles of differentiation.
Courses of study will be appropriately modified in content, teaching strategies, and expectations of student mastery. Curriculum objectives shall focus on academic skills, using differentiated principles to provide opportunities for gifted students to achieve at levels commensurate with their identified abilities.
