Straus' Gifted and Talented program empowers our learners with choice of content to expand and enrich their learning experience.

The program fosters critical thinking, safe-risk taking, critical problem solving, and independent research as well as presentation skills all while in a safe-space that explores both collaborative and independent learning models.

Northside Independent School District provides instructional opportunities and various services designed to meet the unique needs of students with significantly advanced general intellectual ability and/or specific subject matter aptitude in language arts, science, social studies and/or mathematics. These programs provide an appropriately differentiated curriculum in an effort to help students work to their fullest potential. GT program services may include a modified delivery of instruction for students by accelerating and/or providing for greater depth, more complex content, and enrichment activities. Specific GT program services are available in Kindergarten-12th grades. GT Specialists serving identified GT students have met the state requirements necessary for the teaching assignment. Northside ISD recognizes that all students are entitled to a program of educational experiences that provides opportunities to maximize the development of their capabilities.
