The Gifted and Talented Program at Morley develops the academic abilities of all students to their highest potential. Developing skills for in-depth study and self-directed learning are important goals of the program. Students are identified for the gifted program using multiple criteria including outstanding performance, behavioral checklists; product review; standardized tests; and psychological assessment. Needs of the high ability student will be met by the classroom teacher using differentiated curriculum. Differentiated lessons for gifted students may modify content, process, product, and learning environment.
