The St. Elmo Center for Gifted Education and
the MCSD Gifted Department
is committed to
providing an environment that nurtures the unique learning characteristics,
interests and capabilities of gifted and talented students. Within this
environment students are encouraged to realize their potential and develop a
desire to use their talents and abilities to continue to set higher goals in
their educational and social lives.
Through rigor, collaboration and higher level learning,
students will develop appropriate skills, concepts, and attitudes that will
involve their own learning in order to become independent, self-directed
life-long learners who will demonstrate and fully understand and accept the
diversity of self and others.
