Bucks County Technical High School is dedicated to developing all students’ abilities through appropriate educational experiences, recognizing that many students have the capacity for extraordinary learning or outstanding talent. We believe that students can demonstrate and develop exceptional abilities in a wide variety of areas valued by our culture. BCTHS recognizes that all students have capacity for extraordinary learning ability and/or outstanding talent.
Bucks County Technical High School recognizes that students come from diverse socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, and the mission of the gifted and talented program, based on research and curriculum development by leading experts in the field of gifted education, including Dr. Joseph Renzulli, is to provide opportunities for students to explore their intellectual, creative, and artistic gifts and talents within the academic and technical classrooms and with beyond-the-classroom experiences. It is essential to provide diverse, appropriate, and ongoing learning experiences and environments that incorporate the academic, psychological, and social needs of students. It is our responsibility to provide students with educational alternatives that teach, challenge, and expand their knowledge, while simultaneously stressing the development of independent and self-directed learners who continuously generate questions, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information and ideas.
