FRESHMAN GT ORIENTATION SLIDESHOW
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 GT 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 are also encouraged to support our GT students.
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.
