Tulpehocken’s Gifted Programs

Our Philosophy is that Gifted students are gifted all the time, every minute of every day. Consequentially, they need differentiated instruction throughout their entire school day, every day of the week.

Elementary Gifted Programming

Our Elementary schools have embraced the beliefs of Susan Winebrenner, internationally known expert of Gifted Education. Students are provided with differentiated instruction in the regular classroom to optimize learning and increase depth of knowledge.  Gifted students also meet during intervention blocks in the Gifted Support room with intellectual similar peers to collaborate on the following Enrichment Opportunities:
