Gifted and Talented

  • Hallsville ISD is committed to providing learning experiences that meet the academic needs of all students. The HISD Gifted/Talented Education Program services students who perform or show potential for high and/or advanced intellectual ability. The purpose of the Hallsville ISD Gifted/Talented Program is to provide challenging academic opportunities that enable all Hallsville ISD students, K-12, to achieve their full potential. Program goals are to:

    • Identify and nurture advanced potentials
    • Identify those with special talents/abilities who need something beyond the regular classroom experience.
    • Prevent the gifted child from becoming an underachiever.
    • Provide the most appropriate level of instruction to support the needs of gifted learners.

    Students participating in services designed for gifted/talented students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication, as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience and environment. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted/talented students will have produced professional quality products and performances as part of their program services.
