Gifted and Talented

The Manor ISD Gifted and Talented (GT) program emphasizes the identification of gifted and talented scholars beginning in kindergarten. Scholars may be nominated for evaluation throughout the school year. Identified GT scholars in grades first through fifth attend Accelerate, Innovate, Motivate (AIM) Academy one day per week.

Additional instructional services in core academic areas for K-12 take place through the use of differentiated curriculum and project-based learning within the instructional classroom and through GT advisory periods in secondary schools. Instructional strategies promote critical thinking and reasoning abilities, problem-solving skills, independent studies, and creative product development. Scholars are served by classroom instructors who are GT qualified through 30 or more hours in GT professional development and remain current in their qualification by engaging in 6 additional GT professional development hours each year.
