We believe that students with special gifts, talents, and high interests are found in all ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups, and they represent a source of potential innovation, creativity, and leadership. Without appropriate educational opportunities, the superior talents and abilities of many of these students would remain undeveloped or underdevelopment.
Therefore, we have a responsibility to provide an appropriate and challenging educational program, grounded in the recognition of individual differences and unique learning styles, and provided within an environment that encourages and nurtures inquiry, flexibility, and divergent thinking.
It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well. – Rene Descartes
