Each student possesses a unique set of strengths and needs, and it is the goal of GT at Steck to come alongside classroom teachers, students, and parents to challenge all students at an appropriate level. This can mean a variety of instructional and extracurricular options designed to enrich or extend classroom curriculum.
2014-15 Update: This year we will continue to build our GT program at Steck. Many of last year's changes will remain, with tweaks here and there as we look to refine curriculum, increase communication, and respond to ongoing changes within GT in DPS and the move nationally towards the Common Core. Our goal remains to make the programming we offer as intentional as possible, and address [anticipated and unanticipated!] bumps along the road. We so appreciate your continued support, patience, and communication with us as this process takes place.

Topics include: anxiety, perfectionism, parenting, math and science activities, etc.
