Our Gifted & Talented Program
The Perth Amboy Public School Gifted and Talented program fosters a love of learning. We are creating a program where a student's passion can be explored.
We are committed to a model that values differentiated instruction, one in which classroom teachers work to tailor instruction and content to match student ability level. Our Gifted and Talented program is designed to address the unique social and emotional needs of children by promoting self-understanding, awareness of needs, and cognitive and effective growth.
We hope to inspire and support this special group of learners to embrace challenges and opportunities.
