Advanced Studies incorporates a flexible organization that allows the students time & space to pursue topics of individual interest and passion. The majority of these students have previously received gifted programming involving the teaching & development of thinking skills, discussions centered around social & emotional topics relevant to gifted students, and in-classroom accommodations and/or acceleration. Students in the Advanced Studies class create and design their own course of study on a topic of interest for a minimum of one semester. Some students with more in-depth studies may choose to carry their projects over from one semester or year to the next. With guidance, each student will propose, map out, pursue, and complete a self-designed project of personal interest.
