     Gifted and Talented Olympus Program

     
    The Springtown Independent School District's Gifted and Talented program, Olympus, is available to students in grades K-12 and is designed to meet the diverse needs of the gifted population.  Olympus program options enable gifted students to work together as a group, work with other students, and work independently.  Flexible pacing and grouping patterns, as well as independent investigations, are also employed to allow students to learn at a pace and level appropriate for the students' abilities and skills.
     
    Nomination:
    For grades K-12, students may be nominated for the gifted/talented program at any time by teachers, counselors, parents, or other interested persons. Students in grades 6-12 may nominate themselves. Students may be nominated only once during each school year.
     
    If you are interested in nominating a student, contact the Advanced Academic's coordinator at your student’s campus.
