 Is your child a rapid learner who put thoughts together quickly?

Does your child have an excellent memory or an unusually large vocabulary?

Does your child have an advanced comprehension of word nuances, metaphors and abstract ideas?

If so, the district’s Extended Learning Program may be a good fit for your child. 



Extended Learning Program services are provided to meet the needs of identified gifted/talented and high ability students. ELP services offer students the opportunity to engage in learning with greater depth, complexity, and rigor, through differentiated curriculum and instruction. ELP coursework is extended beyond the general education classroom and is more abstract and complex, giving students greater depth of understanding. Skill development with higher order thinking skills in both critical and creative thinking is an important part of the students' experiences. Certified teachers with a Gifted and Talented Endorsement teach ELP classes. The Extended Learning Program serves gifted/talented and high ability students in elementary and middle schools with two service models, Magnet ELP and Neighborhood ELP.


The Magnet Extended Learning Program (MELP) is a district administered program in which students are identified by national normed assessment measures. Eligibility is determined at the district level. 

  • Elementary Magnet ELP is a full day program at Emerson (1-6), Hawthorne (K-6), and Whittier (K-6) schools, taught by certified teachers who also have or are receiving a Gifted and Talented Education Endorsement.
    • Students are found eligible for Magnet ELP through an assessment process. Application dates and assessment dates will be posted on the district website in September 2019. 
  • Middle School Magnet ELP serves students in four core subjects at Clayton, Hillside, and West High School. 
    • Students are found eligible for Middle School Magnet ELP through an assessment process. Application dates and assessment dates will be posted on the district website in September 2019.

This summer our very own Physical Education teacher, Reid Anderson, hit the road with a lucky group of 8th graders and headed down to Moab, Utah for a week of adventure. Mr. Anderson and a crew from Friends of Arches, Canyonlands Field Institute, and Canyonlands Parks led the students as they set up camp, hiked, river rafted, paddle boarded, ate good food, and played games. We are so proud of and grateful for Mr. Anderson and the organizations he partnered with for the opportunity and experience they helped create for our awesome students. We feel confident that this was a trip they will remember for a long time to come.

The video below sure does make us excited for next year’s Operation Adventure Utah trip!
