Gifted & Talented


In the Telluride School District, we believe that gifts and exceptional talents…

  • Can be found in academics, creativity, performing and visual arts, and leadership.

  • Are found in students with special needs

  • Can be found in students of all cultures, ethnicities, genders, and socio-economic status.

  • Should be identified and developed.

  • Must be nurtured in both the social development and the emotional well-being.


It is our vision to provide the following learning opportunities for our gifted and talented learners:  

  • To provide an environment that cultivates and encourages intellectual and creative abilities.

  • To provide students with instruction in the regular curriculum and acceleration and/or enrichment according to the student's strengths, interests, and learning styles.

  • To develop a realistic self-concept that allows students to realize and acknowledge their own and others’ skills and talents. 

  • To provide a classroom environment where students can freely and willingly communicate with their intellectual peers and teachers.

  • To increasingly provide the opportunity, structure, and expectation to encourage constructive independence and self-sufficiency.
