Gifted Education

Parkway's gifted education program is multifaceted. In keeping with state guidelines, the program's goal is to provide experiences that service the needs of formally identified students, and other members of the school community as the gifted education teacher's time allows. The students are exposed to the arts, sciences, mathematics, and various forms of communication. At each school, a certified gifted education specialist works with formally identified students.

The goal of Parkway's gifted program is to strengthen the students' higher order thinking skills while nurturing their creative abilities. Additionally, the gifted education teacher serves as a resource for classroom teachers as they modify curriculum to meet the individual needs of gifted children within the setting of the regular classroom via compacting, acceleration and enrichment.
