Summary of the Gifted Education Program:
The gifted education program in Moore includes elementary SEARCH students, junior high pre-AP students, and high school pre-AP and AP students.
The elementary gifted students are served in a pull-out program once a week for approximately 2 1/2 hours. There are eleven SEARCH sites and teachers. Students at off-campus sites are provided transportation to SEARCH classes. In the elementary program, there is an emphasis on developing research and presentation skills along with critical and creative thinking. SEARCH teachers serve as a resource and continue to offer enrichment options to assist classroom teachers in serving gifted students in the regular classrooms.The purpose of the secondary gifted education program is to provide educational opportunities modified in pace, depth, and breadth in individual subject areas. Pre-AP classes are offered in language, math, social studies, and science and the arts. Most of the Pre-Advanced Placement classes have been aligned with the College Board curriculum taught and tested in the Advanced Placement (AP) classes. A wide variety of Advanced Placement classes are offered. Check the course offerings at each high school for specific courses.The Cognitive Abilities Test is administered to all 2nd grade students in the district. This test and the state OCCT results are the basis for most recommendations into the gifted program. In addition to test scores, teacher recommendations are considered. Parents may request placement in the pre-AP and AP classes. The placement guidelines reflect the Advanced Placement philosophy that Advanced Placement should be available to all students who want to achieve at a high level and are willing to accept the challenge.
