PVSchools' Gifted Education programs promote learning through differentiation, expansion of curiosity, and creativity. This is accomplished by providing inquiry-driven opportunities to think at higher levels to develop perseverance and seek new approaches to problem-solving.
Each child is unique and has special talents. Our responsibility is to provide experiences in an atmosphere in which these talents will be nurtured, and new talents will be acquired and encouraged. Our aim is to recognize student interest and need, to be inclusionary, and to provide differentiated experiences that are developmentally appropriate and effective for all learners.
Why not start with the best? The gifted services provided by the Paradise Valley Unified School District in Phoenix, Arizona... If you are looking for a 'complete package' on how to serve gifted children, PVSchools is the Holy Grail you seek."
Leading education expert Dr. James Delisle on PVSchools Gifted Education in his book, Dumbing Down America

- Explore the depth and complexity of content as they assess, analyze, and evaluate information.
- Learn strategies more than merely seek the answers to questions posed in classroom discussions.
- Engage in project-based learning that fosters Socratic thinking and creative risk.
- Appropriate challenge promotes and environment of productive struggle that leads to the development of a lifelong learner.
