| Machias School's Gifted and talented Program is in its second year of implementation. The program consists of several components which are designed to meet the needs of our highest achieving students, as well as challenge and enrich the total school population.
Differentiation Teachers use strategies to adjust the classroom environment, curriculum content, process by which they teach, and required products, in order to meet the varied academic needs, interests and learning styles of our students.
Enrichment Enrichment opportunities are provided for all students, groups of students with common interests, and individual gifted and talented students with the goal of extending their knowledge outside of the classroom by exposing them to "real world" opportunities, and allowing them to act as practitioners in areas of interest.
Continuum of Services Ventures student's specific needs are met through a variety of services. Individualized learning plans may include participation in academically based clubs and competitions, mentorship, apprenticeship, and within and across grade pull out programs. Students may benefit from opportunities to work with advanced learners, volunteerism, independent study, acceleration, admission to advanced, AP, and Early College Courses, and guidance and support for course planning and affective issues.
