Welcome to GT!!!!!

The Pocahontas Public School system has committed itself to providing a program that will challenge and meet the needs of gifted and talented students. 

Program goals:
  • To systematically develop high level thinking skills and creativity.
  • To provide appropriate intellectual acceleration.
  • To provide appropriate educational enrichment.
  • To develop independence and self-direction.
  • To assist personal and social development.
  • To develop career awareness. 

According to the Arkansas Department of Education, “Gifted and talented children and youth are those of high potential or ability whose learning characteristics and educational needs require qualitatively differentiated educational experiences and/or services. Possession of these talents and gifts, or the potential for their development, will be evidenced through an interaction of above average intellectual ability, task commitment and /or motivation, and creative ability.”
