Gifted and Talented


Lovejoy ISD is committed to providing a world-class education to all students. Gifted and talented students receive instruction in designated gifted and talented classes with an emphasis on depth and complexity, project-based learning, and opportunities to make connections locally and globally.

Identified gifted and talented students demonstrate abilities in original and creative thinking, exceptionally high achievement, and are self-directed learners. Gifted and talented students often pursue an area of interest or passion through Independent Studies and the Texas Performance Standards Projects.
