Gifted and Talented Student Philosophy

Aurora Public Schools is dedicated to meeting the needs of every student by offering educational opportunities appropriate to each child’s ability.  Accordingly, it is committed to providing for the unique learning needs of the gifted and talented.  Gifted and talented children and youth exist within all ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups.  Providing an array of service options which recognizes individual strengths, interests, and challenges best maximizes gifted student potential.  The District believes said services should be a part of the overall educational programming which supports growth and excellence for all students.  Successful attainment of this objective necessitates collaboration and communication among students, parents, schools, and communities.

Gifted and Talented Student Definition
Gifted and talented students are those students between the ages of five (5) and twenty-one (21) whose learning capacity and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational affective needs.  Gifted and talented students are capable of advanced learning and performance in any combination of the following:

  • Intellectual ability
  • Specific academic aptitude
  • Creative or productive thinking
  • Leadership and human relations skills
