Gifted and Talented

The Trenton Public School District recognizes the diverse abilities and learning styles of all children.

There are students within the city of Trenton who possess and display innate attributes of giftedness in a variety of academic and extracurricular categories. The Trenton Public School’s Office of Teaching and Learning proposed a Gifted and Talented Program in accordance with the guidance of the National Åssociation for Gifted Children and the New Jersey Department of Education (N.J.A.C. 6A:8-3.1) to support such students.

The proposed program includes comprehensive enrichment for all students in kindergarten through third grade, and programmatic enhancements via pull-out instruction, accelerated and/or elective courses for students identified as Gifted and Talented Learners in grades 4-12.  Students' eligibility for Gifted and Talented services will be assessed and determined using multiple measures through the structures identified in the Gifted and Talented program proposal.

Please refer to the Trenton Board of Education Policy #2464 - GIFTED AND TALENTED STUDENTS for additional information.  Questions and concerns regarding eligibility and enrollment in the Trenton Public Schools Gifted and Talented program can be directed to the Trenton Board of Education.
