Gifted Magnet Program

The elementary Gifted Magnet Program (GMP) has been an integral part of School District 11 for nearly sixty years.  The GMP is a full-day, every-day self-contained program for gifted students in grades three through five. The program’s philosophy focuses on educating the gifted child through comprehensive curriculum centered on year-long themes. We instruct gifted children using the Autonomous Learner Model of experiential learning and by using a wide variety of exploratory lessons and activities.
