Gifted Information

Gifted and Talented

One of the strengths of our school community is the diversity of our student population.  Students come to our schools with varied backgrounds, academic strengths, and wide-ranging talents. Liberty Center Middle School is committed to providing relevant and rigorous instruction to students that enables them to reach their potential and achieve success.

Students identified as gifted and talented require specially designed instruction.  These students possess superior skills in the areas of cognitive ability, academic achievement, creativity, and the visual and performing arts.  While the district utilizes both acceleration and enrichment to meet the academic needs of these students, specific attention is paid to meeting their social-emotional needs, as well. These strategies are implemented in several different instructional settings.  Most of our students receive a great deal of their instruction in general education classrooms in which teachers differentiate their instruction to meet the needs of all students. Some students accelerate through the curriculum by receiving subject area instruction in general education classrooms above their current grade level and still others receive appropriately challenging instruction in a classroom or course specifically designed for gifted learners.

If you have any questions about our services for students identified as gifted and talented, please contact Gifted and Talented Coordinator Mrs. Katie Jimenez  at [email protected] The following form helps us to determine if a student is eligible for Gifted or Accelerated services.
