Garfield students who demonstrate gifted and talented behaviors qualify to receive accelerated, self-guided educational experiences. This includes a pull-out program that brings these students together and provides them with an academically stimulating and complex curriculum. Students maximize their individual gifts through the development of decision-making, problem solving, critical and divergent thinking skills.
