We are committed to the identification and development of our diverse population of gifted students. We envision a K-12 experience where identified gifts are fostered and the social-emotional needs of the whole child are addressed. This occurs within an environment of challenging and meaningful learning experiences where learners are encouraged to develop their academic abilities to their fullest potential.
Advanced Education Services recognizes and addresses the rights of gifted students to be provided with the direction, time, encouragement, and resources to realize their potential in order to become confident, productive adults.
