Children are a valuable resource. The individual and society receive maximized benefits when attributes are enhanced and developed. Gifted children and youth are a unique group, who, due to high intellectual ability, need and profit from an educational program that provides curriculum beyond that available in the normal classroom. Students benefit from a curriculum that extends their learning in depth, breadth, and complexity at an accelerated pace.
Southwest Licking Local Schools recognize the responsibility to provide an educational environment in which each individual can develop character, leadership, service, and scholarship according to his/her abilities and needs.
To accomplish these goals, Southwest Licking Local Schools offer many differentiated programs. The district is committed to providing organized, diverse programs for students to offer educational experiences commensurate with the gifted students' learning abilities.
