Gifted Programs

Park Hill School District Gifted Programs

The Park Hill School District has several special programs designed to challenge students who are academically gifted and help them develop their talents. Gifted programs teach students about critical thinking, logic, creativity and problem-solving.

At the elementary level, the gifted program is a pull-out class called Bridges. Each week, second- through fifth-grade Bridges students ride buses to three elementary schools throughout the district. 

At the middle school, students attend Bridges classes in their own school. At the high school level, students have opportunities to take advanced placement and honors-level classes.
