• Gifted & Talented (GT) Information

Welcome and Introduction

  • Identified students in grades 6-12 are provided service through open enrollment Pre-AP and AP classes with GT-trained teachers in the core subject areas of English language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics. Additional opportunities offered to secondary students include the Gifted and Talented Academy at Quail Valley Middle School (grades 6-8), and the Gifted and Talented Mentorship Program (grade 12).

    We are pleased to be a GT Learning Plan Pilot Campus again for the 2021-2022 school year. Parents of GT-identified students will be receiving detailed information regarding the GT Learning Plan process prior to its implementation on the campus. Students will also have the opportunity to complete a Texas Performance Standards Project as way to research their passion and present it in an Academic Showcase in the Spring. 

    Please visit the FBISD GT webpage for information on evaluation for GT services.

TPSP Project Opt-in/Opt-out

  • Current GT students have the opportunity to either opt in or opt out of doing the TPSP project. The deadline to submit this form is Sept. 15, 2022. Students and parents should have received this form in the Schoology course and via their advisory teacher. Please contact Kristy Pennington with any questions.

    Completing this form does not opt you out of GT services, only the TPSP project. Students will still complete learning plan goals.
