Belief Statement

The Newport Mesa Unified School District offers a Gifted and Talented Education Program for eligible students in grades 4 – 12. The programs are designed to meet the needs of high ability and intellectually gifted students. Classroom instruction begins with the grade level core curriculum and is differentiated based upon student need and ability. The development of critical thinking is emphasized.

Philosophy Statement

When participating in a differentiated curriculum, bright, talented students will become analytical thinkers, creative producers, and practical problem solvers.

It is our goal to provide unique learning opportunities for the gifted learner, providing opportunities to develop individual potential, to explore interests, to develop sensitivity and responsibility, ethical standards, and a healthy realistic self-concept.
