Leadership Prep School

Gifted & Talented
Leadership Prep School GT Program 
Individuals often demonstrate their gifts and talents in many ways; one individual may possess exceptional academic talents and another may be an exceptional artist, musician, athlete, or performer. Leadership Prep School's Gifted Program is designed for the student who demonstrates the need for advanced academic challenges and for opportunities to develop his/her creative thinking. Leadership Prep School's Gifted Program may not meet the needs of students whose gifts and talents are in areas other than advanced academics unless the student participates in the various fine arts classes that are currently offered.


State Goal Regarding Services for Gifted Students
Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment. High school graduates who have participated in services for gifted students will have produced products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.
At Leadership Prep School

•       All teachers have completed a minimum of 30 hours of GT training and are qualified by the state to provide instruction for GT students.


•       Differentiation occurs within the classroom through enrichment activities, accelerated instruction, and opportunities to explore, create, and go deeper into a topic.


•      Our Project Based Learning (PBL) approach is ideal for gifted learners because it promotes student engagement and creativity, and it allows students to expand their knowledge on topics in which they are interested.  It stretches them at every level and in each subject.  Our students are learning how to create professional quality products and how to present themselves in a professional manner.


 Qualification Process

•      Referral forms (Download Referral Form Here) are due on October 5th for 2nd-9th grades.  Students will be assessed during the fall and begin receiving services during the first semester.  Kindergarten students are assessed in January and services begin after Spring Break.  Students may be referred for the gifted program by teachers, parents, principals, counselors, or by the students themselves.  Students are assessed during the regular school day. 

•       New students who were previously identified at another district will need to complete the referral process and testing and meet LPS qualifications; however, teachers can begin differentiation based on apparent needs at any time.
