Welcome to W.D. Slider GT Program
"The term ‘gifted and talented,” means students, children, or youth who give evidence of high achievement capability in such areas as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic fields, and who need services or activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop those capabilities."
- Federal Definition
The Gifted & Talented program at Slider Middle School considers not only academic achievement but the social and emotional needs of our students as well as their ability to excel outside of the classroom setting. Our program was planned so that all students will benefit.
We are a project-driven program, and this year our students are working on self-created, self-driven projects while being guided by Mrs. Schwartz and Mrs. Kern. We will be posting some amazing student-created projects on this website.
