The Gifted and Talented Association of Montgomery County, Maryland, Inc. (GTAMC) is a volunteer organization that advocates for the instructional needs of gifted and talented and higher-achieving students in Montgomery County and serves as a resource on giftedness for parents, educators, and other interested parties in the community.

Please Attend one of the MCPS Board of Education Forums to Discuss What We Need From a New Superintendent

Make your voice heard and advocate for the students who are often forgotten in the discussions of closing the achievement gap.  Remind folks we need all students to grow, no matter where they start from.  Advanced learners have every right to expect a full year's education with differentiated instruction appropriate for their needs.
