GT and Enrichment Programming
By extending the content standards, Lake Middle School will focus our GT programming on going deeper into grade level standards. This will include problem solving and pushing toward higher levels of thinking. Students will have opportunities to learn and problem solve as individuals and in group settings. We will offer Gifted and Talented programming opportunities to both Gifted and Talented and Talent Pool students. Many Enrichment classes are offered that address a variety of needs, including Arts and Culture, Music, Photography, Podcasting, Leadership, STEM, and Sports. Additionally, the Gifted and Talented Specialist consults with all teachers to support differentiation in their subject areas.
