• The Pine-Richland School District is committed to being focused on learning for every student every day.  Inherent in that commitment is the recognition of the unique abilities, talents, interests, and needs of intellectually gifted students which require special educational considerations.  

    Educating the gifted student is the shared responsibility of all educators, the student's parents, and the student.

    Programs for gifted children fit into the array of special programs available for all exceptional children. These programs reflect individual differences, equal educational opportunity, and desire for the optimal development of each child.  Programs that are based on sound philosophical, theoretical, and empirical foundations are those most likely to benefit students identified as gifted.
