The Hopkins Public Schools Talent Development Services program offers support and guidance to our most able learners. The mission of this program is to provide gifted students the opportunity to discover and nurture their potential for academic excellence in challenging and supportive environments.
Each of our schools has a full-time Talent Development coordinator who ensures exceptional students have access to rigorous educational opportunities in core subject areas. In conjunction with the classroom teachers, they provide a variety of programs and services for identified students in all grades.
Boasting a variety of educational opportunities is a fundamental feature of our Talent Development Services program. By providing services appropriate to the academic level of each student, each learner has the opportunity to achieve their highest potential. This philosophy ensures services are adequately provided to gifted students who are hard to identify through formal means, such as standardized testing.
