Gifted & Talented Program

CURRENT GT STUDENTS:

BHE Students currently identified as Gifted & Talented (GT) may receive the following services through SBISD:

Primary Gifted Program (PGP) – serving Kindergarten – 2nd grade

In addition to daily GT services in their BHE classrooms, identified GT students in grades K-2 are offered GT services through a pull-out program for 90 to 120 minutes a week (students remain on the BHE campus during this time). Pull-out instruction focuses on the development of independent research skills and on meeting the social-emotional needs of GT students. The BHE Primary Gifted Program is run by Jill Melancon who oversees Special Programs at BHE.

SPIRAL at Bendwood – serving 3rd – 5th graders 

In addition to daily GT services in their BHE classrooms, identified GT students in grades 3-5 are offered GT services through a pull-out program that takes place at the Bendwood campus. Students are bussed from the BHE to Bendwood one day a week for a full day of services with GT students from other campuses. Instruction in the SPIRAL program at Bendwood is interdisciplinary. Units of study are designed to provide the depth and complexity that GT students need, while also addressing their social-emotional needs.  

 

If you have a BHE Student currently identified as GT and would like further campus-specific information and ways to connect to other GT parents, please contact the BHE GT parent liaison, Jennifer Choo to be added to the parent email list.
