GT 5 After-school (onsite or online)


Calendar and Schedule

This will be the year for your rising 5th grader to get the acceptance letter from for one of the following GT magnet elementary schools.

Gifted Fifth Graders will have the opportunity to enter the middle school stage of their careers with full preparation, enjoyment, and excitement. Rigorous emphasis will be placed on the mathematical portion of their curricula, which will include: multiplying fractions, finding percentages, finding the areas of complex polygons, and more. Verbal emphasis will focus on building a strong middle school level vocabulary and building solid essay writing skills. These skills will equip advanced Fifth Graders for the rigors of a Gifted middle school level education, state-level standardized testing, and beyond. Expect to be challenged!
