The Ventnor City Schools begins the GT program in grades K-2 with a push in model that allows for the GT teacher to observe and offer enrichment activities to the students. Grades 3 and 4 have a pull-out GT program that enhances content areas and allows for students to explore topics of interest. Grades 5-8 GT students participate in accelerated learning in all grades through acceleration in Mathematics and ELA. In addition, our grade eight students participate in Algebra 1 and Spanish 1. The District Curriculum provides suggestions for all content areas to enrich all GT students in the program across all subjects.
