Northside Independent School District is committed to meeting the needs of all students. In order to meet the needs of gifted students, NISD works to identify children who demonstrate high intellectual ability, creativity, and task commitment. The district has a flexible system of viable program options that provides a learning continuum that reinforces the strengths, needs, and interests of gifted students.

GT Leadership II- Focus on entrepreneurship, service leadership, and application of servant leadership within our community in a variety of ways
