At the Lewis Center for Gifted Learning we believe in connecting academic study to the roots and beauty of our classical atmosphere. We enhance our academic curriculum by presenting it on the wings of modern day technology and progressive practices.
Students at The Lewis Center for Gifted Learning will have the unique opportunity to experience topics of study that are often only offered as pull- out or after school activities in the traditional school setting.
HOW IS GIFTED EDUCATION DIFFERENT?
THE BENEFITS OF GIFTED EDUCATION
Gifted education is under the umbrella of special education. When a student is identified as a "gifted learner" they are identified as having an educational need to be taught differently. At The Lewis Center for Gifted Learning, we believe that our unique learners have the right to be challenged and reach their full potential.
The classroom environment at The Lewis Center for Gifted Learning is very unique. Your child’s experience is tailored to what is considered to be ideal for the gifted learner. We implement innovative teaching methods to stimulate the minds of our students, allowing them to progress in their academics. We provide students the opportunity to reach their fullest potential, understanding that their needs are beyond that of what the traditional classroom provides.
