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.
