The goal of the Clinton Community School District’s Talented and Gifted Program is to provide a differentiated, enriched academic environment for all students. We recognize that students have unique needs, talents, and abilities that require an education which utilizes instructional methods and materials designed to develop critical thinking processes that enhance independent study and personal effectiveness.
