Director of Advanced Academics




The mission of the Dickinson ISD Gifted and Talented Education Program is to provide gifted and talented students differentiated instruction that challenges the students. The district will establish and provide programs for gifted and talented students to work together under the guidance of trained teachers in an atmosphere that is intellectually and academically rigorous and which fosters creativity. 


Dickinson ISD recognizes that gifted students have special needs and abilities which must be carefully addressed.  Gifted programs will provide identified students with opportunities beyond the regular curriculum to broaden their knowledge, skills, and experiences.  These programs will provide opportunities for students to explore their unique potential and enable them to make positive contributions to society.  Emphasis will be on developing independent, self-directed learners by encouraging and supporting in-depth learning and divergent and creative thinking. 



Students who participate in services designed for gifted students in DISD will demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communication as evidenced by the development of innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age, experience, or environment.  High school graduates who have participated in services for the gifted will have produced products and performances of professional quality as part of their program services.
