Gifted & Talented
The Gifted and Talented Program in Meridian is committed to meeting the needs of students who demonstrate above average potential or achievement. We believe that all children are unique. All children have talent and all children have different learning styles. We know that gifted students learn at different rates and may need different experiences in order to stimulate and maximize their learning.
Referral for the Gifted and Talented Program for the 2018-2019 school year will be accepted beginning Feb. 1, 2018. Any student is eligible to be referred by a teacher, parent or community member. This process includes multiple and specific criteria required by the Texas Education Agency. All students referred are tested, teacher input is gathered and the results are scored on a matrix.
Referral forms will be available Feb. 1, 2018 and are available in the counselor’s office. Please return referrals to the counselor by Feb. 28, 2018.
Parents of students who qualify for the program for the secondary grades will be notified prior to the 2018-2019 school year.
