Gifted and Talented

Philosophy

The Pearsall Independent School District includes in its educational philosophy that all students should be given the opportunity to fulfill their potential. The classroom provides the setting for the development of academic potential. Because gifted/talented students possess the ability to progress beyond the regular curriculum, the district offers a differentiated program to cultivate these exceptional abilities. By providing a curriculum and environment that will enhance the uniqueness of the gifted learner, we will improve the quality of education for all students.
