Advanced Academics – Gifted

“The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice. -Brian Herbert.”

About the Program

In Florida, gifted is defined as one who has superior intellectual development and is capable of high performance.

To be eligible, students demonstrate:

● A need for a special program

● A majority of characteristics of gifted students

● Superior intellectual development as measured by an intelligence quotient of two standard deviations or more above the mean

At Silver Bluff Elementary, we offer an Elementary Full-time Gifted Program (K-5).

Students are served in a self-contained classroom in which gifted strategies are utilized throughout the school day and across all subject areas.

All the students in the gifted course are eligible for gifted services and the teacher is endorsed to teach gifted or on an approved waiver to complete the gifted endorsement.

Please contact your child’s teacher for more information on the gifted program and the evaluation process.
