Gifted & Talented Education

  • Burleson Independent School District demonstrates its commitment to educational excellence through its array of programs for academically gifted and talented students throughout the grade levels. The Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students indicates five categories of giftedness: general intellectual ability, specific academic aptitude, creativity, leadership, and visual/performing arts. Currently, Burleson ISD serves students through the gifted and talented program who are identified as advanced intellectually and academically. Their giftedness may surface as an outstanding aptitude in one or more of the areas of language arts, math, science, and social studies. Programming focuses on gifted academic experiences and personal development. Although many gifted students also possess artistic/musical, creative talents and leadership characteristics, courses, and programs are available outside of the gifted and talented program for students talented in those areas. The Tiny TAG program, the TAG Program, the Honors Program, the Advanced Placement program, and the GT Independent Study Fair all provide a wide variety of learning opportunities throughout an identified gifted student’s schooling.
