The K-12 gifted program consists of differentiation in the classroom, accelerated and advanced classes, as well as resource room service provided by a gifted intervention specialist.
Our current programming includes:
Grades 3-4 Students spend one day a week under the guidance of a gifted intervention specialist in a pull-out setting exploring content through project based learning.
Grades 5-8 Accelerated Reading and Math classes are taught by a gifted intervention specialist or regular classroom teacher. Regular classroom teachers receive professional development related to gifted competencies prescribed by the Ohio Department of Education.
Grades 9-12 Challenging coursework is provided through honors classes, Advance Placement courses, and College Credit Plus courses taught by regular classroom teachers. High school classroom teachers receive professional development related to gifted competencies prescribed by the Ohio Department of Education.
All students receiving gifted services in the Barberton City School District have a written education plan (WEP) outlining their gifted education goals for the school year.
