Gifted and Talented
Bruce Randolph prepares students for post-secondary opportunities by providing a rigorous and accelerated education in a supportive and restorative educational setting. Gifted and Talented (GT) learners, in particular, will receive an intentional curriculum geared towards developing students’ personal efficacy and agency. In addition, it is our mission to identify more culturally and linguistically diverse students for GT programming by gathering anecdotal data needed to qualify our Talent Pool students as [H]GT and continuing to add to the Talent Pool from our diverse set of learners.
