Gifted and talented and high performing students have a right to an appropriate education, one grounded in the recognition of individual differences and unique learning needs.
Gifted and talented and high performing students need a curriculum responsive to their individual learning rates and styles.
Gifted and talented and high performing students learn best in an instructional environment that encourages and nurtures inquiry, flexibility, critical and creative thinking.
