We provide nationally recognized gifted education ranging from ages three years old (preschool) through eighth grade, who demonstrate exceptional, differentiated abilities and learning needs.

We aim to educate the whole child. We strive to provide a dynamic and challenging educational environment that anticipates and responds to the individual intellectual, social, emotional, physical, aesthetic, and cognitive needs of gifted children.
