  • Mission

    The purpose of gifted education in Edina Public Schools is to provide appropriate learning experiences and intellectual challenge that result in continuous academic growth.

     

    Philosophy

    The mission of Edina Public Schools remains constant and is the foundation of all we do in student programs. The key components of the mission have long been priorities of this district – working in partnership to educate ALL individuals to thrive in society. Edina Public Schools recognizes the uniqueness of each student and attempts to meet each individual’s educational needs on an ongoing basis. The Gifted Education program personalizes learning for students who demonstrate high performance abilities or who have the potential to do so.

    A district priority is recognition and identification of these students, commitment to meeting their needs, and dedication to maximizing their academic performance.

    The purpose of gifted education in Edina Public Schools is to provide appropriate learning experiences and intellectual challenge that result in continuous academic growth.
