What is a Gifted Center?

The needs of advanced learners are mainly addressed at each neighborhood school. Jeffco offers an optional program, the Gifted Center, for highly academic students who are identified as Gifted.

In existence since 1984, Gifted Centers are housed in regular school settings and provide full-time educational experiences. Instruction involves acceleration, enrichment, and attention to affective needs. Instruction is based on various formal and informal data to assure that the needs of the students are met.  A trained GT Counselor provides social-emotional support to classrooms one day per week at each of our GT Center schools.

Jeffco currently offers 9 Elementary school, 6 middle school, and 2 high school Center programs.  See this map of the GT Center Schools.
