Gifted Education in Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools


Our vision is for gifted and talented students to acquire the knowledge, skills, behaviors and attitudes to achieve their learning potential. To develop their fullest potential, we will encourage students to embrace diversity, contribute positively to their community, explore possibilities, and aspire to excellence.  


We believe Gifted Learners …

  • Need opportunities that challenge and inspire them to grow academically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.

  • Need adults who perceive their emerging talents and nurture their potential.

  • Need teachers who are aware of the nature and needs of their gifted students, are resolved to meet those needs, and have expertise in doing so.

  • Need time during the school day to explore their giftedness.

  • Need instruction that enables them to achieve at least one year of growth for one year of schooling.
