• Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Program at Willow Creek

     Serving students at Barbara Morgan STEM, Hunter, Meridian, Paramount, Peregrine, Pleasant View, Ponderosa, and Willow Creek Elementary Schools!

  • Our center identifies and serves first through fifth grade gifted students through academic and social-emotional curriculum delivered in a pull-out setting once per week.  Our curriculum focuses on critical and creative thinking skills, taught through standards-based units.  Each grade level will focus on asking and answering essential questions related to the universal theme for the year.  Identified students ride a bus from their home schools to our center on the schedule below:

    Grades 1/2 -  Mondays  9:30-1:30

    Grade 3-  Tuesdays 9:30-1:30

    Grade 4-  Wednesdays 9:40-1:30

    Grade 5-  Thursdays 9:30-1:30


    We look forward to guiding your child!
