Ridgecrest Elementary School and the Center for Gifted Studies

The Center for Gifted Studies at Ridgecrest Elementary has been serving gifted students for over 20 years, the center admits students in grades one through five who meet gifted eligibility criteria, and who are selected in the magnet lottery process.Students use integrated pieces of information to develop a well-rounded approach to learning rather than basing education on isolated, often unrelated, facts. Program teachers work with the students one-on-one to help them identify their strengths and areas of need, thus enabling them to be self-directed learners while building a strong sense of accomplishment.
