Gifted and Talented

The philosophy of South Texas ISD reflects an understanding of the uniqueness of individual gifted/talented students.  Because the learning characteristics of gifted and talented students dictate learning experiences that differentiate from those provided for them in the regular school program, the district recognizes that special provisions must be made for these students in order to stimulate and maximize their achievement as well as provide for their social and emotional needs. 

South Texas ISD recognizes that gifted and talented students are found in all cultures, socioeconomic groups, geographic locales, and environments.  South Texas ISD will serve the needs of those students who perform at or show the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment.
