It is the philosophy of the Beebe Public School District that all children and youth should be provided with an educational program which will allow them to develop to their maximum potential. We believe that gifted children and youth exist in all levels of society regardless of gender, age, socioeconomic background, or ethnic population, Due to their abilities and/or potential of advanced achievement, these students need educational opportunities different from those available through the regular school program in order to realize their potential.
The Beebe Public School District is committed to an education program that recognizes the unique value, needs, and talents of the gifted and talented students. Our program is designed to provide appropriate materials to challenge their thinking and reasoning, and to stimulate these students to reach a higher level while allowing them to interact with their age peers during the majority of the school day. Our program is differentiated in content, process, and product.
The ExCEL-Gifted and Talented program seeks to provide identified students with the opportunity to interact with their intellectual peers as they experience a challenging and differentiated program designed to meet their cognitive and affective needs. This experience builds the ExCEL student's leadership, communication, critical thinking, academic, and creative skills. The ExCEL Gifted and Talented Program provides a unique learning experience and challenge to be internalized for application in the ExCEL Gifted and Talented student's evolving world.
