Gifted and Talented

Welcome to Timber Trail’s Gifted Education page. Here you will find announcements, resources and links, and identification information for teachers and parents. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of all gifted students, both academically and socially.  Academic needs are met by clustering our identified gifted students in groups of 4-6 in mixed-ability classrooms, giving them access to appropriate levels of challenge and complexity by a trained teacher and an opportunity to be challenged by their peers. We also offer flexible groupings in math, independent study opportunities, and blended learning to ensure we are meeting the individual needs of all students. To meet their social/emotional needs, our counselor works with small groups of students on resiliency, risk-taking, leadership, and self-awareness. Please contact Debbie Clemente at dkclemente@dcsdk12.org if you have any questions or would like additional information about gifted programming at Timber Trail Elementary.
