Spectrum provides services for identified students in grades 6-8. Spectrum is scheduled for a half block on a rotating day basis. The program is designed to meet the needs of gifted learners with an emphasis on higher-level thinking skills, problem-solving, and decision-making. The program provides students with opportunities for self-assessment and reflection on the demands and responsibilities of the gifted learner.
Here is a video overview of the Spectrum program and the Eligibility Process from the Spectrum Supervisor, Mrs. Wendy King.
