Gifted and Talented Education
Gifted and talented students are those who show exceptional performance and outstanding
abilities, or who demonstrate obvious potential for in-depth advanced academic programs.
These students have been identified using a body of assessment evidence. LPHS is committed to
providing an educational program that recognizes the unique abilities and educational needs of
gifted and talented students and provides appropriate differentiated services and programs to
encourage positive character development, high level thinking and creative productivity. Project
based, student-directed learning through Mind Works class and advanced Independent Study
courses is also encouraged to support our Gifted Ed students. Please visit the Gifted Ed Program
Website, found under Departments on the LPHS home page, for more information about support
NOTE: Course offerings from the Gifted Ed Program are open to any LPHS student who meets the requirements.
Students do not need to be in the Gifted Ed Program to enroll.
Please visit LPHS Counseling Department page for the Course Handbook and other important post-graduate planning information.
