AHIS gifted & talented programs


AHIS is committed to the belief that gifted and talented students require guidance in discovering, challenging, and realizing their potential. Under this philosophy it becomes the responsibility of the entire staff, in partnership with parents and the school system, to meet the needs of gifted and talented students.

Gifted and Talented students possess intellectual capacity, rate of learning, and potential for creative contributions demand experiences apart from, but connected to, the regular classroom. Therefore, our GT program constantly seeks innovative ways to engage gifted and talented students in education by establishing venues for students to develop research and problem solving skills, create products, serve others and showcase accomplishments. Every attempt is made to insure that students utilize their skills maximally through programs that nurture the academic, creative, artistic, leadership abilities, and social/emotional needs of gifted, talented and creative children.
