Gifted and Talented

Welcome to Our GT Site


The goal of our gifted programs is to provide a differentiated, enriched academic environment for students with advanced learning abilities that uses instructional methods and materials designed to develop thinking processes that enhance independent study and personal effectiveness.

Children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade receive differentiated instruction on campus through the PGP (Primary Gifted Program).  Children in 3rd to 5th grades attend SPIRAL (Spring Branch Program for Improving Reasoning and Accelerating Learning) at Bendwood Elementary on Thursdays with children from Hunter's Creek Elementary and Memorial Drive Elementary (other schools in the district attend Bendwood on the other days).  You can find more information about SPIRAL on the Bendwood PTA website.  You can find out more about Gifted and Talented programs at SBISD's Advanced Academic Studies Webpage.
