Advanced Academics

Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented Parent Conference Announced

"Genius without education is like silver in a mine."
Benjamin Franklin

The education of our gifted children is critical to their development.

"It is not enough to have a good mind: the main thing is to use it well."
Rene Descartes

Even in the most profoundly gifted child, an education not used is wasted.

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
William Butler Yeats

Igniting students' curiosity, thus helping them to become lifelong learners, is among our greatest tasks.

Lisa Meyer
Coordinator of Advanced Academic Programs

Because we value the unique potential possessed by the gifted child, Deer Park ISD commits itself to providing developmentally appropriate activities for those identified. Careful attention to the affective needs of these children, balanced with an academically challenging curriculum, will promote long-range success.
