Gifted and Talented:  STRIVE

Liberty Hill ISD Gifted and Talented Program

LHISD recognizes students from all ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups regardless of existing handicaps or disabilities may demonstrate an exceptional ability in academics or divergent thinking.

LHISD has adopted policies and designed programs to address the unique needs of those students identified as gifted and/or talented.  Identified gifted and talented students in grades K-8 are provided with on-going educational services through the district’s gifted/talented program STRIVE (Strengthening Talents, Reasoning, and Intellect through Varied Experiences).  Students identified as gifted and talented and in grades 7-12 are served through one or more of the four foundation courses by a teacher trained in differentiating instruction for the unique needs of a student who is gifted and talented.

It is the goal of LHISD to ensure all such students are provided with a variety of educational experiences which support their individual potential for excellence.
