The Gifted Learning Center

  • The GLC is a self-contained gifted program for students in grades K-6 located at Sahuaro Elementary.

    Students learn with like-ability peers based on ability level as opposed to grade level. Classes are multi-age and focus on the needs and understandings of the individual. Students learn using authentic learning opportunities, including using Project-Based Learning,  under the supervision of experienced, gifted endorsed teachers. The program and teachers focus on the social emotional development and academic needs specific to gifted learners. 

    Gifted students must meet qualifications and apply for the program. Applications to the GLC program are accepted year-round.
