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 Placements classes.
