Gifted & Talented

The Gifted Center at Kyffin

Gifted Centers are alternative placements for highly academic students. It is a program for students that could benefit from a full-time program with other accelerated peers. The curriculum moves at a fast pace, with emphasis on higher level thinking skills and a thematic approach to content areas.

The application and testing process usually occurs from November through February for the following school year. For more information or an application, contact The Execeptional Student Services Office at 303-982-6650 or visit the Jefferson County website.
