Networks - Special Schools & Programs


The Special Schools & Programs Network believes that gifted/talented students are served in a variety of alternative settings, such as private independent schools, magnet, or specialty schools; Saturday or summer programs; and university-sponsored schools and institutes. These private and publicly funded special schools and programs are vital to the ongoing research and comprehensive delivery of services addressing the needs of gifted individuals. This Network is dedicated to promoting alternative, experimental, comprehensive services to gifted individuals beyond the scope of traditional public school settings, and reporting in a scholarly way the findings and activities developed and practiced in the special schools and programs in order to benefit all gifted students.
