The Horizons Program
Students in 2nd through 5th grades are served in the Horizons Program. Each elementary school has a gifted specialist who works with gifted students in this pull-out resource setting. The Horizons curriculum has an academic content foundation, but it focuses on interdisciplinary enrichment activities. The content and pacing are differentiated to the degree that activities are more advanced than the regular classroom. Students in kindergarten and 1st grade receive gifted services through their classroom.
