All 28 of our classrooms at Galileo incorporate Gifted and Talented Education strategies into their daily learning. We are focused on maximizing each student’s potential and use these strategies to assist in meeting this goal. Our goal is to provide activities and instructional strategies designed to be compatible with how the brain processes information. We strive to challenge and improve the skills of all students while making sure to challenge our gifted and high-ability students. At Galileo, we are helping students become thinkers. Galileo staff take strategies previously reserved only for identified GATE students and introduces them to all of our students regardless of ability levels. Through differentiation, interdisciplinary thematic instruction, use of the Icons of Depth and Complexity, questioning strategies, creativity, research, and hands-on real life experiences our students have fun with learning while maximizing their potential.Teachers, students, and parents work together to foster each student’s maximum potential through use of GATE and 21st Century strategies.
