Did You Know?

Not all gifted students “appear” gifted.

Some students may achieve at high levels and do very well at school, but they are not necessarily gifted.

Gifted learners may exhibit some of the following:

  • Underachievement
  • May exhibit behavior problems
  • May hide giftedness
You can help us in many ways, including through financial support, as well as personally volunteering for events.
