It is the belief of the Forsyth County Schools that all students have the right to develop their talents and abilities to the fullest. Embodied in this belief is the commitment to gifted and talented students who possess learning characteristics and needs that differ from those of their chronological peers. The mission of gifted education is to maximize the potential of gifted and talented students by providing programs and services that accommodate these differences, including curriculum responsive to individual learning rates, styles, and complexity. Identification and eligibility procedures are established through guidance from the Georgia Department of Education.
At Mashburn Elementary we realize that gifted students are gifted five days a week. We also recognize that we have many high achievers that could benefit from practicing higher order thinking skills. In order to accommodate the individual needs of each child, classroom teachers and gifted education teachers collaborate to provide the differentiated curriculum needed.
