REACH Highly Gifted Program Students, Parents and Teachers Provide Sneak Peek and Admissions Process at Information Night
Madison Elementary School District is inviting parents both inside and outside the district to learn more about REACH, their highly gifted program, on November 7 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Madison Center for the Arts located at 5601 N. 16th Street. The open house and information night will offer local families information on the admission process, program opportunities and how REACH prepares profoundly gifted children for social, academic and emotional success.
The informal evening helps parents of highly gifted children across the Valley who are looking for educational options. The Rigorous, Enriched, Accelerates Curriculum (REACH) maintains the highest admission standards in the state and offers tuition-free, top-tier high school and college preparatory education for highly gifted students.
Children learn two grade levels ahead in an immersive, engaging environment involving in-depth research, hands-on exploration and student-led discovery. They receive a daily Spanish class, develop a differentiated educational plan (DEP) in an area of interest that is researched and reported on in both oral and written presentations, and take a class field trip to locations such as Catalina Island Marine Institute, AstroCamp and Pali Institute. REACH classes are taught by highly qualified, appropriately certified gifted teachers in the classroom.
For questions on REACH, contact Casey George, Director for Signature Programs, at 602-664-7931.
