Gifted & Talented
Eden Prairie Schools strives to ensure that each student reaches his/her full potential by working to meet the unique educational needs of every student who walks through our doors.Eden Prairie Schools meets the unique educational needs of students through our gifted and talented services. Learners thrive best in an environment that challenges and nurtures individuals, fosters mutual respect and celebrates diversity. Some learners have academic skills, cognitive abilities, leadership abilities and creative talents that differ in degree and dimension from their chronological age peers; therefore, our purpose is to identify gifted and talented learners in order to provide services to meet those unique academic, social and emotional needs.
Eden Prairie Schools’ students, staff, parents and community members are partners in working toward educational excellence. Creating the conditions for learning, with high expectations, is significant for the success of this work. Each member of the partnership shares responsibilities for removing barriers and ensuring learning opportunities so gifted and talented learners’ potential may be fully realized.
