Gifted and Talented

GT Coordinator: Amber Thompson Raymond

“Warren County Public Schools is committed to supporting the needs of children who have been identified as possessing the ability to perform at exceptionally high levels. These children are identified and provided services based on criteria outlined in 704 KAR 3:285.”

 

Our mission statement at Warren Central is to engage all students every day to promote life long learning. Our faculty, staff and administration makes sure that this is made possible for all students daily.  For our gifted students, teachers are encouraged to use various forms of differentiation in the classroom including, but not limited to the following:

Acceleration

Collaborative teaching

Curriculum compacting

Enrichment

Higher level Questioning

Independent study

Learning centers

Peer Mentorship

Tiered assignments

Independent projects

 

Students that have been identified as Gifted and Talented at Warren Central have the opportunity to participate and be active in a plethora of activities throughout the school year that enhance their educational experience. There are many advanced classes, and extracurricular clubs and organizations that they can choose to be a part of. They even have the opportunity to apply to our College Academy where they will be both a college and high school student simultaneously.

 

Although there is no longer a pullout program that takes place like at the elementary level here at the high school, gifted and talented students have many opportunities to challenge their way of learning and sharpen their creativity skills. Students are exposed to ways to truly cultivate their study skills and work ethic while also preparing themselves to be career and college ready.
