Gifted Education

The Phoenix #1 program for Gifted and Talented students is known as ALPS, which stands for Accelerated Learning Procedures. 

The Gifted Program actively challenges and enriches gifted students, encouraging the development of leadership skills, emotional intelligence, and critical thinking. Gifted Education services are provided at your child’s school. 

If you believe your child belongs in the gifted program, you may nominate him or her for gifted assessment and screening. Students, teachers, school administrators and special education staff may also nominate students for gifted testing. In this case, parents or guardians must provide permission for the testing. 

Please contact the Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Theresa Nickolich, at (602) 257-4054 for information regarding your request for a gifted education assessment or about the services provided to your child.
