Starting in the Fall of 2022
Middle school students are enrolled in Innovative Thinkers 1 (6th grade), Innovative Thinkers 2 (7th grade) and Innovative Thinkers 3 (8th grade). These year-long dedicated GT courses create opportunities where students are challenged to think critically, explore, create, develop, and become independent thinkers and leaders. These courses are taught by campus GT Specialists who also manage the GT referral, screening, and testing process. In addition to GT courses, students also have multiple opportunities to earn high school credit while still enrolled in middle school.
Identified GT students attending any of our Middle School Magnets will receive GT services through specialized magnet courses and curriculum. These courses and curriculum are designed to foster inquiry and challenge students to think critically, create, and conduct research to support their ideas and outcomes. All magnet courses are taught by teachers who have completed the state required GT training and will provide differentiated instruction to our GT students.
