Learning Extension / Gifted
The students at The Harbour School are a diverse group of exceptional invidividuals. To meet the needs of the academically advanced and twice-exceptional learners among them we have a robust Learning Extension Program. To learn more about our philosophy, please read this blog by Dr. Jadis Blurton.Learning Extension works in conjunction with parents and teachers to arrange for appropriately challenging instruction, extracurriculars, school-based activities, and alternative curricula options. The Program leverages each students’ unqiue strengths to meet their highest possible potential.
Learning Extension Coordinators oversee each individual student’s Learning Extensions Plan (LEP). They work in direct consultation with classroom teachers and the wider Learning Support Team. They also support enrollment in Full Steam Ahead (FSA), AP Courses, SUPA Partnership, John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY), or other relevant programs.
At The Harbour School we believe that students who are gifted or academically advanced need just as much support and attention as those who are struggling. Our Learning Extension Program is carefully crafted to reflect this belief.
