    Philosophy of Gifted Education
    Norfolk Public Schools defines gifted students as those whose abilities and potential for accomplishment are so outstanding that they require services and programs to meet their educational needs.  Gifted students come from many backgrounds, and their special abilities cover a wide spectrum of human potential.  Students identifed as gifted deserve to be challenged to maximize their educational potential.  Norfolk Public Schools recognizes that the social and emotional needs of gifted students should be addressed by instructional and enrichment experiences that reflect an understanding of the complexities of the development of gifted learners that differs from that of their peers.

    "Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing; fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful."
