Timber Lane is fortunate to have all four levels of Gifted and Talented services right in our own building! In addition, we have the Young Scholars program in grades K-2. For more information on the Levels of Service or the Young Scholars Initiative, please go to the FCPS web site for Gifted and Talented Programs, .
Here are the four levels of Gifted and Talented services:
Level I-Model Thinking Lessons in critical and creative thinking for all students.
Level II-Differentiated instruction in grades K-6.
Level III-School-based GT program for identified students in grades 3-6.
Level IV-School-based GT Center program for eligible students.
Young Scholars-Promising students in grades K-2 are given additional opportunities to develop their thinking and learning potential.
We started our school-based GT Center program with one third grade class in August, 2005. In 2006-2007, we had third and fourth grade GT Center join the GT program. 2007-2008, we added a fifth grade class and in 2008-2009 and the sixth grade class joined the GT Center.
