The Eanes Independent School District is committed to an educational program that recognizes the special value, needs, and talents of the individual student. Gifted students need a qualitatively differentiated program that provides time for academic work with other gifted students and time for work on creative self-directed projects. EISD provides appropriate educational services for identified gifted and talented students as part of its overall K-12 program
The gifted program incorporates core content areas of science, social studies, math, and language arts in the elementary and middle school pullout programs, and in the high school Pre-Advanced Placement classes and Advanced Placement classes. The program provides a rich curriculum, which develops and reinforces skills in critical and creative thinking, logic and problem solving, divergent thinking, research, and communication.
The focus of the GT Program is to serve students who have instructional needs due to exceptional potential in both intellectual and creative abilities. Because each district has different qualifications guidelines, children, including students new to the district, will need to be assessed in order to be recommended for the Eanes ISD Gifted Program.
Assessment occurs once a school year beginning in early September.
Please click on the Assessment link to locate the online consent form. Consent MUST be signed by August 31. If you would like more information or would like to set up a conference please contact me.
