Gifted & Talented

The Gifted and Talented (G/T) program in Lago Vista ISD provides a combination of in-class enrichment and special classes to provide an array of learning opportunities that enable identified G/T students to work with their gifted peers, to work with other students, and to work independently.

LVISD Philosophy of Gifted Education
We believe that every student has the right to optimal development. Each person is unique; therefore we are committed to an educational program that recognizes the special value and needs of the individual student. Providing programs and materials for gifted students who perform at or show the potential for performing at a remarkable high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment (§29.121) is an integral part of this commitment. 

We believe that gifted students need a continuum of learning experiences that leads to the development of advanced level products and/or performances (§89.3 TAC). Modifications in instructional strategies, content, and the development of skills and/or products are part of the services provided. The program helps develop self-actualized learners by encouraging effective communication, guiding learners to be focused and self-directed, nurturing intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, and focusing on independent research study skills, as well as developing critical and creative thinking and problem solving skills. 

The purpose of the program is to seek, identify, and provide gifted learners with experiences that develop the potential of each individual. Identified gifted students should be challenged in order to fully develop their abilities.
