Welcome to Quest
 
Purpose:
 
Quest, the WISD gifted and talented program, identifies and serves gifted students in grades kindergarten through twelve. The district program provides a differentiated curriculum in the four core academic areas to meet the needs of the gifted learner. Students engage in a variety of activities in all four (4) core content areas: language arts, science, social studies and mathematics with an emphasis on project and research based learning experiences. Students are provided a learning environment where depth and complexity are the focus in both individual and group settings.


The goals of the program are:
  1. Modify the depth, complexity, and pacing of curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of gifted students
  2. Provide a learning continuum to reinforce the strengths, needs, and interests of gifted students
  3. Encourage community and family participation in the gifted program
  4. Provide enhanced learning experiences allowing gifted students to develop innovative products and performances that reflect individuality and creativity and are advanced in relation to students of similar age
