Each student who is gifted in general intellectual aptitude should be provided an appropriate program that recognizes and develops those unique values, needs, and abilities. We believe that instructional services for gifted learners must be addressed as an integral part of the school's comprehensive educational program in grades K-12. Activities and opportunities shall be structured to emphasize development of self-awareness, self-expression, inquiry, and problem solving. We believe that learning experiences for gifted learners should emphasize the development of higher level thinking processes, research and communication skills, and creativity in both affective and cognitive learning domains. The needs of students who display a high level of general intellectual aptitude are addresses through differentiation of instruction, enrichment programs (both summer and during the school year), enrollment in honors and advanced placement courses, and enrollment at Appomattox Regional Governor’s School.
