Program Goals

The goals for the MCISD Gifted/Talented Program enable students to become well-rounded individuals whose education allows them opportunities to grow in their areas of giftedness. With this in mind, the following goals have been adopted:
  • Gifted/Talented students will develop a more positive self-concept and sense of self-esteem through effective interaction with adults and peers in multiple settings.
  • Gifted/Talented students will engage in self-directed learning and independent research at an advanced and complex level as a precursor to continuing self-motivation, exploration, discovery, and lifelong learning.
  • Gifted/Talented students will develop advanced critical/creative thinking skills and will apply them in problem solving tasks and increasing advanced intellectual products.
  • Gifted/Talented students will experience topics at a greater depth and complexity and will integrate these concepts across the content areas.
