It is the mission of the Pascagoula-Gautier School District's intellectually gifted program to provide challenging and engaging educational experiences based on individual needs and exceptional abilities that will inspire students to reach their fullest potential.
The goal of the Pascagoula-Gautier School District's intellectually gifted program is provide a qualitatively unique and differentiated curriculum, which recognizes and addresses every students' exceptional needs and communicates those needs with teachers, parents, and community members.
Our first and second grade students will participate in massing screening for the gifted program January 25-29, 2021. The students who score in the 90%ile or higher will continue in the referral process. We will accept individual referrals from February 1, 2021 until February 12, 2021. Parents, teachers, and other students may refer a student in grades 1st -5th for screening. If you would like to refer a student for gifted screening, please contact the administrator at your child's school or the Gifted Coordinator, Kelli McCorkle (938-6418). The PGSD will not screen and/or test students that have been tested two times previously and were ineligible for gifted services.
