Gifted & Talented/Enrichment

  • Gifted and talented education opens windows of opportunity for students to enhance their potential through collaboration, innovation, and problem solving. Students are challenged to engage in inquiry, take intellectual risks, exercise critical thinking, and reflect upon and develop their individual talents.


    In the Livingston Public Schools, we believe all students benefit from higher level thinking and inquiry. Therefore, we service an identified population in addition to offering enrichment for all students. The Schoolwide Enrichment Program provides challenging opportunities which focus upon such areas as public speaking, creative problem solving, philosophical discourse, and STEAM. 
    The Academically Gifted program screens all district students in grades 2-8 annually through the use of multiple measures. Identified students participate in small group classes every rotation. These unique programs focus upon such areas as debate, research, scientific inquiry, structual design, creative writing and STEAM.
