The Renton School District believes that students who have been identified as highly-capable should have the opportunity to develop their strengths and talents through a rigorous academic program which enriches and extends the adopted curricula; honors students’ unique gifts, interests, and learning styles; and promotes higher-order, creative, and critical thinking.
Our work is influenced by the National Association For Gifted Children’s (NAGC) programming standards. With differentiation as a focus, teachers implement CCSS and other content area standards. Teachers also use their knowledge of students and on-going assessments to provide multiple mediums in which students can show their knowledge and skills based on their strengths and areas for growth.
The Renton School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.
