    Gifted Education in Blue Valley includes activities to provide intellectually gifted students the opportunity to identify, develop and expand their educational interests and strengths. The focus is on Question #4 of the Blue Valley initiatives: 

    "What do we do if they already know it?"

    The classes are designed to address the intellectual, academic, social, and emotional needs of each student. Most activities are individualized and self-paced in accordance with the students' Individualized Education Program (IEP). 

     

    Content and activities are designed around the following broad areas of emphasis:

    • Critical & Creative Thinking Skills
    • Research Skills
    • Problem Solving Skills
    • Technology Skills
    • Affective Skills (which address social and emotional needs) 
    • Leadership Skills
