“Schools cannot equalize children; schools can only equalize opportunity. It may be well thought
to be highly undemocratic to provide full opportunity for the exercise of their capabilities to some,
while to others the same offering means only partial exercise of their powers.  It is hard for a
psychologist to define democracy, but perhaps one acceptable definition might be that it is a
condition of affairs in which every human being has opportunity to live and work in accordance
with inborn capacity for achievement.”
                                                                                                                 -Leta Hollingsworth (1922)

What is Gifted?
Intellectually gifted children and youth are those who perform or who have demonstrated the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Children and youth possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.
