    Fort Bend ISD Gifted and Talented Services

    In alignment with the Texas State Goal for Services for Gifted and Talented Students, the mission of the FBISD GT services is to provide learning opportunities that challenge and develop students identified for gifted services through creative, self-directed learning. This can be seen through the development of innovative projects and performances that reflect students’ individuality, as well as through honed research skills and advanced critical thinking.


    Gifted and Talented services are educational interventions for students who perform at or show the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment.

    Elementary: Identified students in grades K-5 are cluster grouped with GT-trained teachers in the core subject areas of English language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics.  Program services for identified Kindergarten students begin March 1 as mandated by the state.
    Elementary Children
    Secondary: 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).
    Secondary students
    Curricular compacting, lesson differentiation, and participation in the projects aligned to the Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) are some of the many curricular options utilized in core GT classes. Additionally, the FBISD GT Department is actively engaged in developing robust programming options through the GT Task Force on a continual basis.
