  • About GT Services

  • Child stacking blocks


  • North East ISD has GT services for identified students in grades K-12. GT services are designed to meet the educational needs of students performing well above peers of the same age, experience, and environment. To qualify for GT services, students must demonstrate an academic need on nationally normed ability and achievement tests. Students who participate in services designed for gifted students will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment and that reflect individuality and creativity.

    In grades K-2, identified kindergarten, first, and second grade students receive GT services through a pull out service model once weekly.  The campus Gifted and Talented teacher delivers services approximately 2 to 3 hours per week on a pull-out basis.  (Kindergarten begins services by March 1st.) 

     Young gifted learners focus their attention on different types of thinking: 

    • Deductive Thinking

    • Inductive Thinking

    • Creative Thinking

    • Visual/Spatial Thinking

    • Evaluative Thinking

    • Critical Thinking

    In grades 3-5 identified students receive GT services through a pull-out service model once a week. Students are pulled together each week for approximately 3 to 5 hours with the campus GT Teacher.  Multidisciplinary units, as well as advanced experiences in literature, algebraic reasoning, Socratic Seminars, technology applications, and independent studies are designed for these students. Attention is paid to students’ interests, unique social-emotional needs, and learning characteristics. 

    Upper elementary GT students focus their learning on:

    • Systems Thinking

    • Masterpieces and Mysteries

    • Eminent People and Philosophy
