Gifted and Talented

Manhattan Middle School is dedicated to providing a superior program for gifted and talented students. Our vibrant, creative, and highly committed staff establishes an environment of expected academic achievement where all students are valued and diversity is embraced. The classroom teacher is the primary provider of advanced academic services to students. Programming is documented in the GT student’s Advanced Learning Plan, (ALP). Classroom differentiation, as well as flexible, accelerated learning, is Manhattan’s best approach to programming for gifted students. Students are also connected to sponsored activities that match students' gifted areas (see below). In addition, math classes are offered 6th through 8th grade and advanced language arts classes are offered to 7th and 8th grade students.
