    Gifted & Talented Program is a 4-year comprehensive program.  The district offers students Advanced Placement courses in the academic and performing disciplines as well as an elective series of interdisciplinary courses entitled Gifted and Talented Seminar.  Eastern’s GT program is based on the School-wide Enrichment Model developed by Dr. Joseph Renzulli of the University of Connecticut National Center for Gifted Education.

    We believe that intelligence is not a unitary concept; therefore, single definitions cannot be used to explain the complicated concept.  Understanding that there is often a limited relationship between test scores and real world accomplishments, we open our program to students who demonstrate well above average ability, task commitment and creativity.  We direct our efforts toward developing gifted behaviors in our students.

    The Gifted & Talented program offers:

    • Model U.N. Conferences at local high schools and regional universities
    • Field Trips to cultural and historical places
    • Leadership workshops
    • On-site and off-site speaker events
    • Service Learning opportunities
    • Partnerships with schools in Malawi and Uganda
