Gifted or Artistically Gifted by a qualified examiner. LEAP (Learning
Enrichment and Progress) renders a unique and challenging program for
gifted children in second through sixth grades. Encouraged intellectually,
creatively, and academically, LEAP students manifest positive attitudes
and superior accomplishments. In the
academically gifted classroom, students are provided with inmumerable
situations and scenarios involving problems ranging from those of a local
nature to those with world-wide implications. By actively seeking solutions
to these problems through research and experience, LEAP students are given
ample opportunities to develop leadership and organizational abilities.
Students in the artistically gifted classes attain valuable visual experiences
in studio activities, intellectual study, evaluation, and critique.
