About the Gifted Program

The gifted program is available at Walton for all grade levels. Referrals for the program can be made by teachers, parents, students, and other community members who feel that a child may need gifted services. Numerous criteria such as testing ability, achievement testing, characteristic checklists, grades, classroom products and honors are used to identify students. There are four (4) programs available at Walton:

  • PACE (Program of Advanced and Creative Experiences) targets students who are generally intellectually gifted.

  • SOAR (Studies of Advanced Reasoning) is designed to meet the needs of students whose outstanding performance in the classroom indicates their need for differentiated instruction.

  • KSOAR (Kindergarten Studies of Advanced Reasoning) is designed for kindergarten students who demonstrate advanced learning and some or all of the characteristics of giftedness.
