Bright Ideas is an extra-curricular theme based program for all motivated & curious elementary students. Students participate in high-level thinking activities as they explore topics they might not get in a regular classroom. Join us this year for a Mixed Pallet of STEAM this year as we learn about science, technology, engineering and math through ART! Fall & spring sessions are available. (Summer information will be coming later in the year.)
The mission of the educators and administrators of Alpine School District’s Gifted Programs and Services is to advocate for appropriate educational opportunities for the diverse population of high ability students. We believe that all children have the right to be educated in an environment wherein real and measurable learning occurs.
Our goals include:
The Advanced Learning Lab, or A.L.L. is the district program offered to elementary students grade 3 to grade 6. The curriculum is built upon the Common Core State Standards, with students reading advanced level literature, advancing in mathematics and going deeper and broader in science and social studies. Placement in the A.L.L. class is intended to be a magnet site commitment. Students test in their 2nd grade year for the magnet sites with 3rd-6th grade programs. Students test in their 3rd grade year for the magnet sites with 4th-6th grade programs.
At the middle school/junior high level, advanced courses are offered in English and History at all district locations, and Science at American Fork, Frontier, Lake Mountain, Lehi, Mountain Ridge, Pleasant Grove, Timberline, Willowcreek and Vista Heights. The Advanced Learning Lab (A.L.L.) Secondary program is offered to 7th & 8th graders. Students test in January of their 6th grade year for placement. Math placement is handled by individual schools and not through the gifted services department.
TESTING REGISTRATION WILL BEGIN DECEMBER 1 FOR INTERESTED STUDENTS. CHECK BACK HERE THEN FOR INFORMATION.
Students wishing to participate in gifted services elementary A.L.L. and secondary A.L.L. programs must be tested for placement. All students in the district are notified and invited to test.
