EDGE (Empowering Diversity in Gifted Education) is a talent development model designed to provide additional academic rigor and challenge to develop the talents of students who exhibit high academic potential and who are from groups historically underrepresented in gifted programs and other advanced academic opportunities. A student with high potential shows readiness for performing at an exceptional level of accomplishment in at least one academic domain and/or is characterized by exceptional gifts, talents, motivation, or high level interests in any academic domain.
At Sully, we have a 3rd grade EDGE group that starts right away with the beginning of the school year. 2nd grade will start EDGE as we begin the 2nd quarter. I visit 4th and 5th grade classrooms each week for Math and Language Arts.
