Orange County Public Schools believes that all students benefit from challenging instruction that results in the attainment of meaningful academic goals. It is the mission of the Orange County Public School System to properly identify and provide appropriate educational services to gifted learners among all ethnic, racial and socioeconomic groups.
Gifted students are those who exhibit exceptional ability at a level such that differentiated educational opportunities must be provided to meet their instructional needs.
The Orange County Public School System understands these needs and is committed to:
  • identifying the gifted learner utilizing multiple criteria for eligibility,
  • providing a differentiated K-12 curriculum which challenges the gifted learner,
  • staffing with certified individuals who are knowledgeable concerning the needs, interests and abilities of gifted learners and providing them with professional development, and
  • providing opportunities for dialogue among parents, staff and community.
