The mission of the Hattiesburg Public Schools REACH gifted program is to address the needs of intellectually gifted children and provide the necessary instructional modifications to increase these students’ skills in:
*creative, productive thinking
*developing and maintaining healthy, positive, enriching relationships
*developing appropriate expectations for and understanding of the self
These instructional modifications include an environment that allows intellectually gifted children to learn from one another, a curriculum that addresses the unique characteristics and needs of the gifted by balancing cognitive and affective instruction/experiences, and a delivery system that employs multiple instructional strategies to accommodate individual learning differences.
