Gifted/Talented Services and Advanced Academics

Advanced Academics

 

 

In the higher grades, NBISD offers a wide variety of Advanced Placement courses, as well as electives and an extensive CTE program to support students in fields of interest.
 
College Board:
The College Board (www.collegeboard.org) website offers resources for assessment preparation and college planning.  It's never to early to look ahead.

Opportunities for Enrichment and Advocacy:

Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented:
The Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented (TAGT) is a community of teachers, parents, and professionals with a shared desire to "strengthen programs, services, and funding for gifted and talented education."

Resources include:
Help with creating a Parent Support Group in your community: www.txgifted.org/parent-support-groups
A listing of Enrichment Programs in your area: www.txgifted.org/k-12-program-listing

TAGT also offers several scholarship opportunities for students. The 2019 TAGT scholarship application will reopen in January 2019. We encourage our Gifted and Talented students to consider applying this school year.  Please visit www.txgifted.org/scholarships for more information.

The 2018 Summer Scholarships have been awarded to 54 gifted and talented learners from across the state of Texas. To see the list of scholarship award winners, please visit www.txgifted.org/2018-student-scholarships

National Association for Gifted Children:
The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) advocates for improved identification and support for our Gifted and Talented population.  Like TAGT, the NAGC offers many resources, including:
