Gifted Program

Plew's giftedl program is designed to meet the unique social, emotional, and intellectual needs of gifted and talented students. The program provides students with challenging learning opportunities. Learning activities are interdisciplinary, extending across many core subject areas.

Gifted classrooms are formed in a variety of ways:  cluster grouped in heterogeneous classes, split grade-level classes, or a combination class of gifted and talented students.  Students are taught by gifted endorsed teachers and core content is differentiated to meet their needs.
