The Higher Ground Gifted/Enrichment Program includes the following:
Grade Level Pull-OutStudents in grades 3-6 identified as gifted or highly able are pulled out of their regular classroom for a half-day once a week. Working in the Higher Ground Resource Room, these students concentrate on six different areas: current events, logic and analogies, critical and creative thinking, Continental Math League, research and unit study. Students also attend the computer lab on a weekly basis.
Whole Class Enrichment ProgramsEach classroom, grades 1-6, is visited biweekly to work on a lesson in brainstorming, creative/critical thinking, logic and problem solving skills.
Independent StudyStudents in grades 3-6 have the opportunity to meet individually with the HG teacher to set up an independent study in an area of the student's interest.
Primary Enrichment ProgramStudents in grades 1-3 meet with a Primary Enrichment Parent every other week to participate in science, math, problem solving and creative/critical thinking activities.
Junior Great BooksAfter reading a story, students in grades 1-8 meet once a week with a parent or teacher to participate in interactive group discussions.
Future Problem SolvingStudents in grade 1-3 participate non-competitively in the Future Problem Solving Program. We hope to add a grade per year in the FPS program. Beginning in grade 4 the students will compete on a state and national level.
