Gifted and talented students are born naturally gifted, and they have an innate ability to see the world in a different way. Gifted students possess the aptitude to ask the questions, challenge the facts, and experiment through self-directed learning. If these gifts and talents are nurtured from a young age and supported by all stakeholders, the gifted population has the highest probability of producing our scientists, doctors, engineers, university professors, lawyers, writers, entrepreneurs, and so many more!

In Decatur County, we support our gifted students and understand that each student’s needs are different, and we are here to identify those needs and facilitate authentic learning for our gifted and talented students in their “quest” to reach their highest potential!
