Gifted & Enrichment

Gesu School is committed to a differentiated curriculum which provides an enriched curriculum for students with high ability in reading and/or mathematics.

Students qualify for these programs by their CogAT scores as well as a calculation of cumulative MAP scores.  in this program students delve deeper into the content while building their analytical skills.  The Socratic Seminar model is utilized as students learn to be critical thinkers, communicate their ideas clearly, and collaborate with peers.
