**First Day of QUEST Class - September 17, 2017**
QUEST is Leander ISD's Gifted and Talented program. QUEST is an acronym which stands for Quality Utilization and Enrichment of Student Talents.
The LISD QUEST program is set up as an enrichment to classroom learning. In the QUEST classroom, students learn and use tools that help them research ideas and topics. They will explore the creative thinking skills of fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration in their projects. They will also apply critical thinking and problem solving skills in their daily projects.
QUEST is a challenging, interdisciplinary, project-based program that requires high intellectual ability (95th percentile or above) for successful participation. The QUEST program does not accelerate a particular area but does expand, extend and enrich academic content areas through interdisciplinary projects. While QUEST students' inventions and products may not look conventional to others, they reflect in-depth, complex thinking and creative problem solving.
