Philosophy of Gifted and Talented 
Township of Ocean Schools


The Township of Ocean Gifted and Talented Program strives to serve above-average students who exhibit "gifted behaviors."  These gifted behaviors may be identified as academic achievement, creativity, and/or task commitment.

The Gifted and Talented Program will serve as a vehicle for radiating excellence throughout the school environment.  A partnership of home, school and community will challenge students to develop their talent potential to the fullest.

The philosophy of the Gifted and Talented Program is to motivate, challenge and nurture all identified students to achieve their highest level of performance by providing instruction and support to enable independent learning.

Through the district's comprehensive 3-8 Gifted and Talented Program, based on the Renzulli Triad Model, The Ocean Township School District fully commits to its responsibility in recognizing the specific needs of its students and fostering these students' interest in order to ensure they become lifelong learners and can contribute to the positive development of themselves and society.
