Gifted & Talented

Welcome to Sheridan Green Gifted & Talented

What do our Sheridan Green students say?
*Th GT Center program is robust in a way that allows me to learn my own way, and at my own pace. I enjoy learning while doing it!
*Many people say that school is a simulation of life.  But if school is easy, how can it be an accurate simulation? In life, you have to work for things. Why not work for things in school, too?

What do our Sheridan Green families say?
*The best thing about the Gifted and Talented Center program at Sheridan Green is the focused attention on my child's advanced learning needs and advanced learning plan! 
*My Favorite thing is my student's social/emotional needs being met by teachers trained in how GT kids function and by being with similar peers.
*My child is FINALLY being academically challenged!
