Why a special school for gifted and talented children?

Contrary to popular belief, the gifted do not naturally thrive without support. Like all other children, they must have educational experience at an appropriate level for them. A truly suitable academic program for gifted and talented children occurs only as a result of purposeful planning, mentoring from knowledgeable and dedicated adults, and a commitment to the needs of these students and their families. EAGLE School fully embraces this philosophy, offering gifted students the assistance they need to thrive.
