Welcome to the home of the Gifted Department at the Calhoun Educational Complex.
Program Overview & Goals
Calhoun City School is proud of our curriculum which supports those students who are extremely driven and work toward the highest educational level possible. This plan begins with the Discovery Program which serves those students identified as gifted under state testing and identification guidelines. Discovery is offered to students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Once a student enters middle school, they may be enrolled in honors classes without being technically identified as gifted. These placements are based upon teacher referral, educational performance, and motivation. This criteria is also continued throughout high school where students can further challenge themselves through honors and/or the Advanced Placement Programs.
Calhoun City Schools strives to:
The Automatic Referral process is an opportunity for students to be identified as potential candidates for further testing who may not be otherwise nominated. Calhoun City Schools conducts an annual Child Find by examining the fall universal screening data as well as standardized testing conducted the previous school year. Homeroom teachers will complete the nomination form for these students.
