Gifted and Talented Education

Vanessa Bullock, Gifted and Talented Coordinator

BRAVO is the pull-out program for students identified as Gifted or Talented in the specific academic areas of math, language arts, social studies, and science. Students are eligible for BRAVO classes based on test scores. Each grading period students identified in Language Arts and Social Studies are pulled from their first Encore class for 4 1/2 weeks, while students identified in Math and Science have BRAVO the last 4 1/2 weeks of the grading period. BRAVO incorporates Core Content instruction with hands-on projects students might not be exposed to in a traditional classroom setting.

Students who are identified in the area of leadership are also eligible for our school’s Leadership Team. The Leadership Team, co-sponsored by Mrs. Bullock and Mrs. Cromer, our school Guidance Counselor, develops the students’ natural abilities to lead into positive community service outlets. The Leadership Team has been active in cancer awareness and prevention campaigns since 2007.
