Gifted and Talented
Lufkin ISD educates all children and personalizes curriculum to meet the needs of our students. Gifted and talented students and those with high abilities, need a program that will challenge and engage the child with accelerated programs to encourage them to be successful in their own way.
A gifted and talented student is a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who exhibits high performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area; possesses an unusual capacity for leadership; or excels in a specific academic field. The district recognizes that gifted & talented students are found in all grade levels, all races, socioeconomic groups, geographic locales, and environments.
The first step in determining if the Lufkin ISD Gifted & Talented program is appropriate for your child is to call (936) 630-4254 to request an assessment.
Out-of-district students who qualify for Gifted & Talented services will be waived the out-of-district tuition fees.
