Mission of the Gifted Program
The mission of the gifted services is to address individual academic needs, to provide an environment that allows risk taking and personal growth, and to offer an enriched, accelerated, in-depth, and diverse curriculum.
What Does It Mean To Be Gifted?
Project Arrow is the district gifted program. The state of Illinois defines gifted students as those who "consistently excel or show the potential to consistently excel in general intellectual ability and/or specific academic aptitude or talent." District 204 includes students who "demonstrate outstanding talent or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others their age, experience, or environment. These children and youths exhibit high performance capability in intellectual, creative, and/or specific academic fields." The district gifted programs includes the top 5% of students in 2nd through 8th grade and approximately 10% of the students at the high school level.
