EXPLORE GIFTED EDUCATION PROGRAM

MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Aberdeen School District gifted program is to ensure that intellectually gifted children, as defined by the Mississippi Department of Education, are offered appropriate educational experiences that are qualitatively different from those available in the regular classroom in order to provide opportunities for them to realize their abilities and potential.

PHILOSOPHY
The Aberdeen School District believes that effective instruction for intellectually gifted students is created in an environment that not only permits learners to interact with their intellectual peers, but also nurtures self- directed learning, flexibility, decision making, thinking skills, and divergent skills. This environment nurtures both the cognitive (thinking) and affective (social and emotional) needs of the intellectually gifted learners, and hopefully, encourages them to become life- long, imaginative, autonomous learners.

OUTCOMES
The Aberdeen School District will ensure the following outcomes:

  • Thinking Skills.
  • Creativity.
  • Information Literacy.
  • Communication Skills.
  • Affective Skills.
  • Success Skills
