    To identify Gifted and Talented students, including those from diverse racial, socioeconomic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds, and provide high-quality differentiated opportunities for learning that meet students' particular abilities and talents.



    The philosophy of Gifted/Talented Programs is integrally connected to the District’s mission for all students. The District’s instructional programs for gifted and talented students are based on the principles that all students are to receive an education appropriate to their individual capabilities, interests, and needs, and that students have learning opportunities that help develop their abilities to the highest level. Because gifted and talented students generally demonstrate high performance or capacity for high performance beyond age/grade expectations, they are atypical learners who require specialized learning experiences beyond the regular curriculum to ensure their success.



    Embracing our diversity to educate L.A.’s youth, ensure academic achievement and empower tomorrow’s leaders, We Are One L.A. Unified.
