To ignite a passion for learning and teaching at high levels.
From school to world: All students prepared for productive futures
The philosophy of the Savannah Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS) gifted department is to meet the instructional needs of gifted learners based on each student's unique abilities. Modifications must be made in content, process, product, and pacing of curriculum. The gifted program emphasizes the gifted students' need for interaction with intellectual peers and for an educational experience that includes a high level of depth and rigor compared to students in the general population. Collaboration is encouraged between teachers, parents, and students to adapt resources and instructional methods that will allow for specialized educational experiences which will promote the development and expression of the gifted student reaching his/her highest potential. The SCCPSS gifted department offers nomination, testing, and services to students from all walks of life.
