Philosophy

South Side School District recognizes the special needs of students possessing high academic potential. The district is committed to providing the optimum educational experiences for those students identified as Mentally Gifted. These experiences will be developed within the confines of our present district organization. All educational experiences for the gifted students will be provided through regular classroom placement with many supplemental opportunities to enrich and enhance their individual education programs. It is hoped that both types of experiences will combine to provide the best possible program for each individual student. 
 
The program shall provide a system of continuous identification of gifted students and an appropriate program of instruction. The program shall further provide for the development of abstract, creative and critical thinking and a knowledge of concepts and skills used in problem solving.
 
An understanding of the importance of daily performance in the academic areas will be stressed along with the understanding of interdisciplinary relationships and autonomous learning skills. This program should foster the students' recognition of their responsibilities to society and to themselves.
