Philosophy of Talented & Gifted Program

The Clinton City School System Philosophy of Talented & Gifted Program views gifted and talented students as those students who demonstrate outstanding academic and intellectual ability, creative thinking, and leadership skills in their daily education. Clinton City Schools are committed to providing an appropriately challenging academic environment which focuses upon high achievement goals aligned with the Tennessee State Standards.



Intellectually Gifted is defined as a child whose intellectual abilities and the potential for achievement are so outstanding the child's educational performance is adversely affected. "Adverse affect" means the general curriculum alone is inadequate to appropriately meet the student's educational needs that special provisions are required to meet the student's educational needs to ensure Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).

Academically Talented is defined as a child whose academic performance demonstrates outstanding abilities that may require enhancement and/or supplementation to the general education program.
