Gifted and Talented

    Welcome to the Marek Gifted and Talented Home Page!

    Marek's Advanced Academics Coordinator: Joanna Wang
     
     
    The Gifted and Talented Program offers distinctive services to students who have indicated a need for differentiated curriculum. Our mission is to provide an exemplary program in which all gifted students receive the services they need to become life-long learners who will continually make positive contributions to our society. As the Advanced Academic Specialist, my task is to provide identified students with opportunities beyond the regular curriculum to broaden their knowledge, skills, and experience. Emphasis will be on developing independent, self-directed learners by encouraging and supporting in-depth learning and divergent creative thinking. Gifted students will be expected, through the opportunities provided, to perform well beyond what would be expected of a child of similar age and experience.

    If you are interested in referring your 1st-5th grade child for the GT Program, please print the referral form below, and submit them no later than March 1, 2019 for spring testing, in order to have your child screened for the program:
     
    **Effective the 2014/2015 school year Alvin ISD is instituting a testing limitation of two times in grades 1-5.
     
    Please note, we do not accept nominations for kindergarten students. All kindergarten students are screened throughout the year. Students who exhibit an aptitude for higher level, divergent, analytical, and creative thinking will be selected for further testing. If your child exhibits this aptitude, you will be informed of the need for further testing and potential candidacy.
