Gifted Services for Talent Development

The Gifted Services for Talent Development program in Austin Public Schools encourages growth in students’ areas of strength, passion, and potential.  We are committed to developing students who are:

  • Successful communicators who actively listen
  • Resilient in the face of challenge and adversity
  • Challenged academically and intellectually as learners
  • Responsible in holding themselves and others accountable
  • Productive contributors to the community and global society

To foster growth in these domains, Gifted Services for Talent Development programming uses a tiered model of service delivery.  Advanced opportunities are embedded across a variety of areas with a primary focus on critical thinking, reading, math, and creativity while supporting students in their overall well-being. 

Through these tiered services and supports, and in partnership with families, we aim to provide a meaningful educational experience that meets the needs of all students in Austin Public Schools.
