Pre-K Gifted

  • The Gifted Pre-K is designed for identified young children who have superior verbal and quantitative abilities and talents. The program provides an enriched environment offering advanced and rigorous academic curriculum while sparking curiosity, igniting creativity and nurturing talent. Students have access to advanced materials in reading and mathematics based on individual student mastery levels. Curiosity is peaked with a unique exposure to world language and cultures. Creativity is supported in music, visual arts and physical skills providing a wide base of expression. Our Music Instrument Exploration is founded on regular and sequential skill development. The plasticity of the young brain is capitalized through early exposure to a world language and culture exploration.
