For exceptionally gifted students in grades 2-5, the Navigator Program serves a small, very unique group of learners with IQs of 140 and above. These students demonstrate high levels of:
- Focus in interest areas (long attention span for age)
- Intellectual curiosity
- Big picture thinking
Eighty years of research shows that the academic, social and emotional needs of exceptionally gifted students cannot be met in the regular classroom setting or even in the District's high potential programs. Creating an environment suitable to educate these unique learners will lead to significant achievement gains, improved social growth and elimination of student isolation.
The Navigator classrooms are located in Excelsior and Scenic Heights Elementary Schools, but serve students from across the District. For more information, please contact Diane Rundquist at 952-401-5100
