All children have unique gifts and talents that they can identify with help from their parents and teachers that will make them successful in life. However, not all children meet the criteria for a gifted class. Being a gifted student does not necessarily mean that the child gets straight-A's and has perfect behavior in the classroom. If you think your child may be gifted, or if you are just unsure, please read some of the websites below that describe gifted children. At the same time, though, please know that entry criteria for the ELEMEnTS program is based on a wide variety of assessments.
