Gifted and Talented

Program Philosophy

MSAD #53 pledges to provide a comprehensive educational program that recognizes the unique values, needs, and talents of each student.  District personnel recognize that among our student population, some children advance beyond their age peers in acquisition of skills, knowledge, and dispositions in academic and/or artistic areas, and have the need for advanced critical and creative thinking,  research skills, or creative productivity. 

In accordance with our district mission and state requirements, we commit to the identification of gifted and talented students and to the development of extended and/or differentiated programs to meet their needs. Gifted/talented programming is primarily integrated into the regular classroom through differentiated curriculum, materials, and instructional strategies.
