Arlington Public Schools is dedicated to maximizing the strengths and potential of all students so they may become self-confident, well-rounded, responsible and productive citizens. Many gifted students need opportunities to think abstractly, work at various rates and levels of complexity, and pursue tasks independently. In addition, students eligible for gifted services need opportunities to learn with others of like abilities, as well as opportunities to develop social relationships with others of all abilities. For more resources and information about gifted services in Arlington, please visit the APS gifted services page:
On Tuesday October 22nd from 5:00pm – 5:45pm I will host an information session for parents (in the library). Parents will have a chance to hear about gifted services in APS as well as the identification and eligibility process.
In addition, you can follow me on Twitter see some of the amazing work your students are doing here at Oakridge:
If you have any questions about gifted services here at Oakridge or the identification process in Arlington Public Schools please feel free to contact me!
