Gifted kids shine in the right environment

As discussed above, keeping a gifted child in a regular classroom, without adaptations, typically leads to a mismatch between the curriculum and the child’s learning needs. The child will feel bored and frustrated as a result—not to mention the frustration created for parents, teachers, and school staff. This can give rise to social problems, such as conflicts with teachers and parents, and being excluded from peer groups.

Moreover, research suggests these problems can emerge at a young age. The well-known Marland Report on gifted children in 1972, the first of its kind, reports that

“Because the majority of gifted children’s school adjustment problems occur between kindergarten and fourth grade, about half of gifted children became ‘mental dropouts’ at around 10 years of age.”

It adds that

“Gifted and talented children are, in fact, deprived [if they remain in unsuitable learning environments] and can suffer psychological damage and permanent impairment of their abilities to function well which is equal to or greater than the similar deprivation suffered by any other population with special needs.”

For these reasons, gifted children usually shouldn’t remain in a classroom without significant modifications. Programs should be put in place to tailor the curriculum to their strengths and weaknesses. And, these programs should be administered by teachers with the right training (ideally, specialized training in gifted education).

Gifted students can’t be treated like all other students. They typically need special attention and tailored instruction to keep them engaged.



Here we begin our review of the different types of programs for gifted kids. We first outline the options, along with their strengths and weaknesses. Further down the page, we synthesize this into a comparison table and look at what types of students might fit what type of program. Much further down, we offer advice on choosing a specific program, including questions to ask yourself about your child. Further down still, we provide tools for comparing those schools in terms of the specific accommodations they offer.

One common form of gifted education is a dedicated program for gifted kids. Dedicated gifted programs are self-contained gifted schools or classes. In this environment, students work exclusively with other gifted learners. All the students in a dedicated gifted learning environment will have their curriculum enhanced, accelerated, or both.

Dedicated gifted learning programs typically provide a standardized curriculum: each student will work at the same (likely accelerated) pace and have their curriculum enriched in the same ways. Moreover, the curriculum will usually be accelerated and/or enriched in all subjects. That said, in some cases, it may be possible for teachers to make special curricular adaptations for individual students in this setting.


Dedicated gifted schools:

If your child’s a gifted learner, one option is to place your child in a school for gifted kids only. In these schools, all the children will be advanced learners. The curriculum is accelerated or enriched in various ways, to suit the needs of the students as a whole.

Dedicated gifted schools can provide gifted kids with the right kind of challenge, as well as the chance to meet and interact with students of like abilities and interests. Also, they can give students the chance to work with teachers who have some kind of focused training in gifted education.

On the other hand, if the curriculum is highly standardized, the learning needs of each child may not be taken into proper account—and often, gifted children have very different needs from one another. For some gifted students, then, being in an environment with other gifted children may not be enough: they may need individually tailored support, such as in-class adaptations (which we will outline further below). This is especially true for students who are highly gifted (who are above the 98th percentile), or who aren’t gifted in all core subjects. If you think your child might need tailored support, it’s important to make sure the school provides it.

Also, there are some social concerns with dedicated gifted schools. For starters, being in a segregated environment can reinforce a child’s self-image as “gifted” (and “different”), potentially in a negative way. These children might also experience social exclusion.

There’s also a concern that schools where all kids are gifted may lead to a kind of “hothouse” or “sheltering” effect. The worry is that there may not be enough opportunities to interact with a broad range of people, something that’s crucial to future success within and outside of school.

Dedicated gifted classes:

Another option for gifted kids is a full-time, self-contained gifted classroom which exists parallel to non-gifted classes in the school. As with schools for gifted children, in this setting, your child learns exclusively with other gifted kids. This enables your child to interact with peers with similar abilities and interests. And your child will be instructed by teachers with focused training in gifted education.

There is a lot of support for this approach in Canada and the United States. Nancy Robinson (2003) describes these kinds of classes as “singularly inexpensive and ... probably constituting the easiest and most effective way to meet the needs of many (certainly not all) gifted children.”

The potential educational concerns for gifted classes are similar to those for gifted schools. Dedicated gifted classes—if their curriculum is highly standardized—may still not meet the needs of each student. Again, gifted students often have quite different learning needs from one to another. The teacher must have the right training to distinguish between the learning needs of different students and make the necessary adjustments.

Also, gifted classes can present the same social concerns as gifted schools. Children labelled as “gifted” and segregated from other students can be subject to social exclusion from the broader school population. And there’s the same concern that gifted classes don’t provide enough chances for kids to interact with a broad range of people—people they’re likely to encounter in different stages of their lives.


A different approach to gifted education involves making certain kinds of in-class adaptations for individual children. Provided the teacher has the right training and resources, these adjustments can be made within a regular classroom, alongside regular students. Instead of a full-time gifted class or school, then, you might choose a regular school or class that can support the needs of your child. (Not all schools provide this support, so it’s important to find a school that does).

In-class adaptations can also be used in dedicated gifted environments—that is, in full-time gifted classes and schools. Some gifted students need custom programming, even when in a class with other gifted students.

There’s a wide range of in-class adaptations that can be made for your gifted child. They include the following (see Being Smart about Gifted Education by Dona Matthews and Joanne Foster for a thorough discussion of these):

  • Curriculum compacting
  • Single-subject acceleration
  • Single-subject enrichment
  • Guided independent study
  • Project-based learning
  • Cross-grade resources
  • Cyber learning
  • Peer coaching
  • Career exploration

Curriculum compacting:

Gifted children can often learn with far less instruction and practice than other students. In curriculum compacting, studies are condensed for those who need to work less on the basics.

Using less time to study some subjects frees up time and energy for other learning opportunities. As Matthews and Foster point out, it also gives some students the chance to explore areas of interest in deeper ways and to master material they otherwise wouldn’t have the time for.

This has the added benefit that it can reduce the boredom that stems from having to relearn material that’s already been mastered. It can also lead to improvements in behaviour, social skills, and emotional outlook.


Single-subject acceleration:

It’s rare for an advanced learner to require adaptations in all subject areas. As Matthews and Foster point out, focusing on just one subject area can be a good way to encourage a love of learning and a powerful engagement with school for many students.

Single-subject acceleration involves increasing the pace of studies for a student who excels in a subject. For example, a student gifted in science might be given an accelerated science curriculum tailored to the student’s strengths.

This could mean “skipping a grade” in a single subject. If the child is exceptionally gifted in that subject, it could mean skipping many grades.

In middle and high school, a student might pursue learning at a faster pace through Advanced Placement courses, International Baccalaureate programs, and other high-level options.


Single-subject enrichment:

In this case, studies in a single subject are enriched rather than accelerated. This means gifted students are allowed to explore similar topics as their peers, and at a similar pace, but with far more depth and breadth.

Single-subject enrichment can be done within the classroom or on a pull-out basis. It may be managed by a teacher, a librarian, or another member of the school staff who’s willing and able.


Guided independent study:

In independent study, students pursue interests beyond the classroom with the help of teachers or parents. Examples include learning about a period in history, the effects of carbon emissions on the environment, to the side effects of certain kinds of drugs. Because it’s independent, gifted students can pursue high-level, rigorous study of a subject they have a special interest in.


Project-based learning:

Project-based learning can be used in almost any subject and can be a great way to teach different subjects in an engaging way to advanced learners. Project-based learning involves learning by doing: students are challenged with real-world problems and asked to provide solutions that matter. It works with gifted students because of its inherent flexibility: there isn’t a ceiling to how sophisticated the student’s solution can be (provided that the original problem is interesting enough). Project-based learning can be done individually or in groups.


Cross-grade resources:

One effective in-class approach to gifted teaching involves using resources available to students in higher grade levels. For example, a student advanced in the area of languages might meet twice a week with a Spanish teacher and older students to speak Spanish and discuss Spanish books. The student might find that the discussion and debate in the regular meetings are enough to sustain their interest in Spanish.


Cyber learning:

If done well, cyber learning can supplement work done in class, enabling students to deepen and broaden their knowledge via computers and the internet. Of course, as Matthews and Foster say, there’s nothing wrong with some of a student’s learning taking place through websites, discussion forums, blogs, or any other online resource. What would be problematic, though, is if all of a student’s learning took place online.


Peer coaching:

Peer coaching involves working with other students of mixed strengths, with the help of teachers when needed. Gifted students can deepen their knowledge of topics by teaching them to others. However, for it to work, peer coaching must be tailored to the individual learning needs of the student being coached and to the learning objectives of the task.


Career exploration:

Advanced students might be given the chance to explore career options of special interest. This might involve meeting with adults to discuss their careers, doing thorough research on a career, or being in a co-op program where one spends part of the day or week working as an intern. Career exploration can enhance the interest in and relevance of school for gifted learners.


Dedicated programs for gifted kids and in-class adaptations are the two main approaches to gifted education. There are other options as well, though. One of these options is whole-grade acceleration or “grade skipping.” Another is withdrawal or “pull-out” gifted classes. In addition to these two options, there are several other less common approaches to gifted education. These less common approaches offer either full-time gifted programming or are intended to supplement a gifted student’s ordinary curriculum.


Whole-grade acceleration:

Sometimes children who are gifted students have their studies accelerated by skipping one or more grades. On the other hand, a child might skip a grade or more in just one subject, enter a program early, or be put in a split-grade classroom where the child progresses at approximately the same level as the older grade(s).

Acceleration of any type enables gifted students to move through school more quickly than usual. It can help to resolve the lack of stimulation felt by many gifted learners, as well as the social problems this can give rise to.

On the other hand, acceleration can impede a child’s social progress by preventing the child from being with children of the same age. Acceleration can also lead to gaps in knowledge, given the fast pace of learning and the practice of skipping over subjects other students look at more closely.

Keep in mind that many of the private schools listed on this site, even those not labelled “gifted,” have an accelerated curriculum for all their students. In these schools, students of the same age, whether they’ve been formally classified as gifted or not, do the work of older peers. This approach may be enough on its own for some gifted students, specifically those who are well-rounded and already well-adjusted. However, learners who are either highly gifted or whose strengths aren’t balanced across all core subjects will need a more tailored approach, such as in-class adaptations.

Accelerated curriculum (school-wide) 10%

Withdrawal gifted classes:

Sometimes parents place their gifted child in a withdrawal gifted class or program. In withdrawal gifted classes, students are taken out of their regular class on a part-time basis to receive some kind of advanced instruction.

There’s been lots of skepticism about part-time gifted programs. Many, including Matthews and Foster, claim that the gifted learning needs of children are too important to be restricted to the day(s) on which their gifted class is scheduled.

Furthermore, as they also point out, children can be penalized for missing their regular class (for example, by missing a class field trip), and sometimes teachers resent the pull-out teacher taking the strongest students out of their class. Perhaps most worrisome, the work in withdrawal gifted classes is often not differentiated for learning needs or properly integrated into children’s other studies.


Less common approaches to modifying instruction:

There are also some less common teaching strategies that go beyond basic in-class adaptations. They include the following (for further discussion, see Matthews and Foster):

  • Second language immersion and dual-track programs: Language immersion programs and other programs focused both on general studies and more in-depth study of a subject, language, or skill.
  • Specialty subjects: In-depth classes or programs on subjects such as music, drama, dance, or computers.
  • Specialized schools: Schools with a specific focus on a subject or skill such as the performing arts, applied sciences, technology, or languages.
  • Alternative curricula: Schools that value a special type of achievement such as the International Baccalaureate or Montessori schools.
  • Homeschooling: Addressing gifted needs at home, using an approach that may not be used in the private or public school system.
  • Extracurricular activities: Supplementing school with activities that children find fun or stimulating.
  • Mentorships: Getting expert guidance in one or more areas of interest.
  • Books: Reading as a way to expand and deepen one’s interests and hobbies.
  • Travel: Exploring different places as a way to broaden one’s horizons.




The two main kinds of gifted programs are dedicated gifted environments and in-class adaptations. Each option has its benefits and potential drawbacks. To help your search for the right program, we summarize some common arguments used in support of each option. These arguments are generic, in that they aren’t tailored to your child. Moreover, it’s often just as important to look at the specific school or program as it is to look at the type of program.



 
Arguments for dedicated gifted programsArguments for in-class adaptations
Pedagogical
  • The curriculum is challenging across the board—in all subjects. Gifted students are likely to find this curriculum stimulating. This is particularly true for either students gifted in more than one core subject, such as math, science, or the language arts, or students who aren’t highly gifted (in which case they’ll need further accommodations).
  • Students can learn and interact with other gifted students. This can be ideal for some gifted learners. Students may find working with other gifted learners highly rewarding.
  • Teachers are likely to have specialized training in gifted education. This means they’re more likely to be proficient at differentiation—at tailoring their teaching style to the learning needs of each student. This is extremely important in gifted education.
  • These programs target students’ unique learning needs and interests. Instead of being given a “one-size-fits-all” curriculum, education is accelerated or enriched in only certain subjects—the ones students are advanced in. Since gifted learning abilities are often subject-specific, this has obvious advantages. Students are less likely to fall behind in certain subjects or develop gaps in knowledge.
  • Students who are exceptionally gifted can still be supported, due to the inherent flexibility of in-class adaptations.
  • Students are less likely to feel the pressure that sometimes goes with the “gifted” label. This allows them to simply focus on their schoolwork in a healthy way.
Social
  • Students interact with peers who are likely to have more in common with them. This increases their chances of finding friends among their classmates.
  • Particularly for gifted schools, students are less likely to feel excluded in social situations. When gifted students aren’t in the minority, they’re less likely to be bullied or ostracized, at least for being gifted. On the other hand, being in a “different” school or class can reinforce a child’s idea that they themselves are “different.” This self-labelling can hurt their social development, depending on how they internalize it.
  • Students are less subject to the “hothouse effect.” They’ll be able to learn and interact with students with a wide range of abilities and interests. This can promote healthy, well-rounded social development.
  • Students don’t have to be labelled as “gifted,” and thus don’t have to be labelled as “different.” They can feel a part of the regular class—and be treated by their peers as such.


Ultimately, neither approach— dedicated environments nor in-class adaptations—is “better” than the other. What matters is the fit between the approach and your child. Below, we outline which students might be suitable for which approach. Remember: there is a lot more to picking a school than just the points below. This table is meant to stimulate your thinking, not replace it. Note that your child might display signs from both columns.





To discuss which option might be best for your child, go to our parent discussion forum, frequented by other parents, schools, and education experts.

To start looking at schools, see our list. You can also compare schools by the specific programs they offer (including what kind of in-class accommodations they offer).

While our focus thus far has been on distinguishing between dedicated gifted programs and in-class adaptations, there’s another distinction that cuts across these approaches. Janyce Lastman, a Canadian education consultant and case manager, draws an important distinction between acceleration and enrichment. Some programs, whether dedicated or in-class, emphasize acceleration; others emphasize enrichment.

In acceleration, the student completes studies in less time. This approach increases the pace of learning, as students move quickly to topics normally reserved for older students. It includes options such as whole-grade acceleration, single-subject acceleration, curriculum compacting, early entrance to school, Advanced Placement courses, and International Baccalaureate programs.

In enrichment, on the other hand, students cover topics at more or less the same pace as their age-peers. However, they cover these topics in both a broader and deeper manner than regular students. This approach includes options such as independent studies, project-based learning, mentorships, career exploration, cross-grade resources, dual-track programs, and specialty subjects.

Some approaches to gifted education can involve either acceleration or enrichment, or both. These include cyber learning, peer coaching, and extracurricular activities.

What’s a better bet for your gifted child: a private school or a public one? Well, it depends on the private school you’re looking at, along with what’s available in your public school district.

Public school boards are mandated by provincial law to provide some kind of gifted programming for kids who need it. School boards vary, however, in who they deem gifted and in need of programming, and in what that programming looks like. Sometimes, gifted programming takes the form of a dedicated gifted class. Students enrolled at a school without separate gifted classes might be asked to switch to a school which does have those classes. Sometimes gifted programming involves in-class adaptations, assuming the teacher is qualified in gifted education. Some school boards in Canada also have dedicated gifted schools, though this is less common in the public system.

Some public schools offer the GATE program, which stands for Gifted and Talented Education. The GATE program is designed to address the learning styles of students identified as talented and gifted. In Canada, there is a GATE program offered in Calgary, Alberta, by the Calgary Board of Education (CBE).

In Toronto, there are also schools and programs for gifted students. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has 38 schools with a gifted program. A TDSB gifted program is a great option for many students.

Private schools, unlike public schools, are under no such obligation to support gifted students. It’s up to parents to find out if a private school will make special accommodations for their child. Many schools don’t. Remember, public schools are expected, at least in theory, to try to accommodate everyone.

Private schools, on the other hand, can be more narrowly focused. They can choose their “type” of student, and don’t have to compromise when designing education programs specifically for that type. (It can be inefficient to try to be all things to all people). This, in fact, is one of the virtues of private schools: they offer a wide array of niche choices.

What that means, however, is not all private schools will be the right choice for your child. Gifted children are by definition “exceptional”—they don’t fit the norm. It’s up to you, then, to find a private school that’s able and eager to be flexible in supporting a gifted student. Luckily, in most areas of Canada, there are private schools that do support gifted students, whether they offer dedicated gifted programs or in-class adaptations.

Of course, the benefits of private schools—assuming they support gifted children—are numerous. The right one can be an excellent way to get individualized support for your gifted child. In particular, you should look for a private school that’s attentive and responsive to the learning needs of your gifted child.

Whether you’re looking at private or public schools, though, the quality of gifted programming will have a lot to do with the teachers. Look for schools with teachers who are trained in educating gifted children. Unfortunately, in Canada, the federal and provincial governments provide little funding for teacher training in gifted education (or for gifted education itself).

For more general information on private schools, see our private school basics guide. You can also visit the parent discussion forum.

From a young age, gifted students enjoy taking on tasks that are challenging. This can enable them to improve their reasoning and problem-solving abilities.



As we’ve discussed, gifted students tend to have advanced learning abilities that are subject-specific. Often, they are gifted in some subjects, while possessing average to below-average abilities in other subjects. It’s less common that a student is equally advanced across the board. This makes it important to find the right gifted program for your child, one tailored to their unique learning strengths and weaknesses.

As a rule, students with very subject-specific giftedness are better off in a classroom that makes tailored adaptations for them. In this setting, students can have their studies accelerated, curriculum compacted, or studies enriched in a single subject.

Dedicated schools or programs for gifted kids, on the other hand, are not usually devoted to one subject. They’re generally more suitable for students who are gifted in many subjects. Having said that, if a student is gifted in a “core” subject—such as math, science, or the language arts—dedicated gifted programs can still be a good fit. This is especially true if the student’s learning abilities are at least average in most other core subjects.

Below, we look more closely at some of the options available for students with common forms of subject-specific giftedness.

Some students have gifted learning abilities in only math or science. These students might be given subject-specific accelerations in which they skip a grade in math or science, or in which their math or science studies are condensed. They might also be offered different kinds of enrichment: they might study with a high-level math or science teacher, or participate in a math or science study group with other advanced students.

There are also extracurricular opportunities for these students. For instance, there are after-school math enrichment programs or camps, such as Math Spirit, located in many cities in Canada.

There are also plenty of enrichment programs for advanced science students. In Toronto alone, for instance, there are part-time science programs provided by the Ontario Science Centre Science School and the University of Toronto Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (DEEP). They offer lectures and classes in physics, biology, chemistry, engineering, and computer science.

When choosing a school, make sure to look into their approach to teaching math for gifted students. Some students do well with traditional math instruction, while others prefer the discovery approach. We identify the math approach of each school we profile on this site.

The same can be said of science instruction: some students do well with expository instruction, while others thrive with the inquiry approach. We also identify the science approach of each school we profile on this site.

Some students have advanced learning abilities in only the language arts. These students might have their studies accelerated or curriculum condensed in English or a second language, such as Spanish or French. The teacher might also offer some kind of out-of-class enrichment to help these students improve their language abilities. For instance, they might be given the chance to attend a Spanish discussion group or a reading group focusing on Spanish novels.

There are also extracurricular opportunities for students with advanced learning abilities in the language arts. For instance, they might attend an after-school second-language class in Spanish or French, or join a summer camp for language acquisition.

Some students are advanced learners in a subject not considered part of the “core curriculum.” For instance, some students are advanced in one of the fine arts, such as painting or sculpting. Other students are advanced in some area of music, such as composition or playing the piano. Yet other students are advanced in a sport, such as soccer.

These students would not be considered gifted based on provincial ministry standards, and likely wouldn’t be eligible for a dedicated gifted program. And given how specific their advanced learning abilities are, they likely wouldn’t be a good fit. These kinds of students are often better off obtaining in-class adaptations of the kind we’ve discussed: subject-specific acceleration, curriculum compacting, independent studies, mentorships, and the like.

Some of these students may also benefit the most from extracurricular opportunities. A student who’s a talented pianist may be better off, in some cases, taking after-school piano lessons, rather than obtaining in-class adaptations. A student who’s a talented painter might be better off taking after-school art classes or doing an apprenticeship, instead of receiving in-class adaptations. A student who’s a great soccer player might be best off playing on the school soccer team (if there is one), attending soccer camps, or both.


Students with very subject-specific giftedness are better off in a classroom that makes tailored adaptations for them.





It’s extremely difficult to identify giftedness in preschool-age children, and indeed it often goes undetected in the early years. This is partly because these kids haven’t been in school for long (if at all), so there is a short history from which to spot patterns. Moreover, young kids are less able to communicate their thoughts and needs, and signs your child might be gifted can be confusing at the preschool age.

Yet, just like older children, these kids often end up feeling unchallenged and develop social and emotional problems. It’s important, then, to identify your child’s needs as early as possible, and offer various enrichment opportunities, if those are called for.

As the parent of a gifted toddler or preschool child, you’re faced with a few main options:

  • Trying to meet your child’s learning needs at home.
  • Placing your child in a preschool to provide a challenging and engaging learning environment.
  • Placing your child in a preschool and supplementing this with out-of-school enrichment.

If you decide to place your gifted child in a preschool, you’ll have to consider the type of preschool you want. There are no full-time, dedicated gifted programs or schools for preschoolers, but there are other options to consider. There are academic, play-based, Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia preschools. We compare preschool and daycare approaches one-to-one in three separate articles: Montessori vs. Waldorf, Montessori vs. Reggio Emilia, and Waldorf vs. Reggio Emilia.

Each type of preschool has its own underlying philosophy and way of addressing the needs of gifted children. It’s important not to get too consumed with picking the “best” preschool approach, and instead focus on the following:

  1. The specific characteristics and needs of your child, and how those might or might not fit with a particular approach.
  2. The specific practices of the school you’re investigating.

The Young Gifted Child guide outlines the following best practices for any preschool for gifted learners:

  • They should be willing and able to adjust teaching methods and curriculum to the needs of gifted and talented children.
  • They should help children pursue their interests and talents.
  • They should involve children in creative-thinking activities.
  • They should provide a variety of materials to explore, examine, or investigate.
  • They should encourage children to speak, question, discuss, and be actively involved in learning.
  • They should encourage parents to be involved.

You play a crucial role in fostering the learning abilities of your young gifted child. Again, The Young Gifted Child guide outlines some best practices:

  • Promote your child’s growing need for independence.
  • Set clear limits and guidelines.
  • Communicate clearly and with enthusiasm.
  • Expand your child’s vocabulary by using new words.
  • Provide a variety of learning materials.
  • Help develop special skills.
  • Find playmates who have similar interests.
  • Promote creativity and encourage your child to try new things.
  • Read to, engage with, and cultivate interests and passions with your child.

If you have a young gifted or precocious child, check out the excellent book Beyond Intelligence: Secrets for Raising Happily Productive Kids (2014). It provides a treasure trove of parenting insights by two Canadian experts in child development, Dona Matthews and Joanne Foster.

If you’re ready, you can look at our list of gifted programs and filter it for preschools.

At the elementary or primary school level, there are more reliable ways to identify gifted children. Since kids are in school at this age, there are more chances to identify their learning needs and, in particular, whether they have advanced needs in any specific areas.

It becomes increasingly important to identify the learning needs of kids at this level, since at this age they tend to be more engaged in the learning process. For parents who suspect their school-age child has advanced learning needs, a formal gifted test or assessment is often recommended. Usually, a formal test can determine whether there’s a mismatch between the learning needs of a child and the instruction provided. The mismatch can then be corrected by tailoring the curriculum to the child’s learning needs.

As already discussed, there is a wide variety of schooling options for gifted children at this level. These include dedicated gifted programs, such as self-contained gifted classes and schools. They also include adaptations made in a regular classroom, such as condensing the curriculum, accelerating the pace of study, and providing out-of-class enrichment opportunities.

When searching for an elementary school for your gifted child, you should choose a school that’s the right fit. This means choosing a school that can meet your child’s specific learning needs and gives them the best chance to thrive both academically and socially.

You’ll need to be diligent in trying to understand your child’s unique learning profile so that you can select the right school or program. Typically, though, the search for the right school or program for a gifted student is an ongoing process. Adjustments to curriculum and teaching methods often need to be made. In some cases, you may make the decision to move your child to a new school or program in order to adapt to their evolving learning needs.

If you’re ready, you can look at our list of gifted programs and filter it for elementary schools.

At the middle school or junior high level, it’s recommended that children thought to be advanced learners be given a formal gifted test or assessment. Ideally, this assessment will determine whether there’s a mismatch between the child’s learning needs and their current instruction, and show how this mismatch might be fixed.

Unfortunately, if a gifted child hasn’t been given a formal gifted test by this time, there’s a good chance their learning needs are not being met and that they’re feeling unchallenged in school. These children may already have experienced a lot of frustration, which can lead to social and behavioural problems.


There’s a wide range of schooling options for gifted students at the upper levels.


There are lots of schooling options for gifted students at this level. These include dedicated gifted programs, such as self-contained gifted classes and schools. They also include in-class adaptations, such as condensing the curriculum, accelerating the pace of study, and providing out-of-class enrichment opportunities. Also, there are some enrichment opportunities at this level which are not always available at elementary school. These include project-based learning, independent studies, and peer coaching.

To select the right school or program for your child, you’ll need a strong understanding of their learning needs. Depending on your child’s age and maturity, it’s often a good idea to involve them in decisions about schooling at this level. But it may be necessary to frequently adjust programming for your child in response to evolving learning and social needs, just as it may be at the elementary school level.

If you’re ready, you can look at our list of gifted programs and filter it for middle schools.

By the time high school begins, many advanced learners will already have been given a formal gifted test. If not, it’s imperative to do so, since any mismatch between your child’s learning abilities and their current instruction needs to be addressed right away. The assessment is all the more important for children with social or emotional problems, which may be due, at least in part, to unmet learning needs.

There’s an even wider variety of schooling options for gifted students at this level. There’s dedicated gifted programming, such as self-contained gifted classes and schools. There are also in-class adaptations, such as condensing the curriculum and accelerating studies. Also, there are even more out-of-class enrichment opportunities for high school students. These include project-based learning, independent studies, mentorships, and career exploration. There are also Advanced Placement courses and International Baccalaureate programs available at the high school level for gifted students (and students who aren’t deemed “gifted”), which we’ve already discussed.

To select the right high school program for your gifted child, you’ll need a strong understanding of their learning needs. At this level, it’s important to involve your child in the decision, given their ability to know their own learning needs. You should collaborate with your child to choose a school or program that gives them the best chance to thrive both academically and socially.

Gifted programs often provide good preparation for university, and many universities think highly of gifted programs. This means graduating from a high school gifted program can improve your child’s chances of both being accepted to a good university and excelling once they get there.

If you’re ready, you can look at our list of gifted programs and filter it for high schools.

Young gifted children need lots of stimulation and plenty of learning opportunities.



In your search for the right gifted program, it’s important to consult with teachers, education specialists, and (in some cases) your child.

Begin researching gifted programs early, as much as a year before applying. You can research private schools with gifted programs here on this site (starting with our list of schools), on individual school websites, at open houses, during on-site visits, at our annual school expos, and other venues.

You’ll need to reflect on several questions during this process.

Consider exactly what you’re looking for in a school or program, and why. Your focus should not be on the school, but on the fit between the school and your child. Your first step, then, is to develop a clear picture of your child’s personality, learning style, and academic abilities. This means being clear on both their academic strengths and weaknesses.

Here are some questions to get you started:

  • How is my child best intellectually challenged and stimulated?
  • Which subject(s) does my child excel in, and which does my child struggle in?
  • What kinds of academic interests or goals does my child have that are not being met in my child’s current class?
  • Does my child tend to learn better in groups or independently?
  • What are my child’s primary social needs and how might different programs accommodate these needs?
  • What type of social environment is most likely to promote my child’s development and growth as a person?

Then you need to start thinking about the following:

  • Whether to place your child in a dedicated gifted environment—in other words, a gifted school or class—or find a regular classroom that will make in-class adaptations for gifted learners.
  • Whether to choose a gifted program that emphasizes acceleration or enrichment.
  • Whether to seek or avoid alternative curricula often associated with advanced learning, such as language immersion, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, or Montessori.
  • If you elect for a mainstream curriculum, whether your child would thrive in a more traditional or progressive curriculum. Or, whether a liberal arts curriculum might be a good option for your child.
  • Especially if your child is particularly strong or weak in specific subjects, whether there is a specific pedagogical approach they’d prefer. For example, whether your child who’s advanced in math is more likely to thrive learning traditional or discovery-based math.
  • Your essential must-haves, such as small class sizes or technological facilities.
  • School size: are you looking for a small or large school or program?
  • Program duration: are you looking for a school with an elementary and a high school program, where your child can stay for many years?
  • Whether your child has any special needs that will need support in the classroom (other than advanced learning abilities), such as a learning disability, autism spectrum disorder, behavioural problem, or physical disability.
  • The importance of out-of-class resources such as libraries, homework help, tutoring, and counselling services.
  • The importance you place on out-of-class enrichment opportunities.
  • If you’re leaning toward dedicated gifted programming: the importance you place on your child having opportunities to interact with a wide range of students, including some not enrolled in the gifted program.

You want to have an idea of the kind of environment your child will thrive in academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. Your idea can be tentative—but you should have it clear in your mind.

There are some standard questions to ask schools when investigating them.

Beyond those, there are also questions to ask schools about their gifted program. They include:



 
In-class adaptations Dedicated gifted programs
  • Do you offer in-class accommodations for special needs students, and if so, which kinds?
  • Do you offer in-class accommodations for students with advanced learning abilities (a particular kind of special need)?
  • Does a student need to be formally identified as “gifted” to be given these accommodations?
  • What kinds of accommodations do you offer for gifted learners?
  • Do you offer accelerated studies or out-of-class enrichment opportunities?
  • Are your accommodations offered on a continual basis (so that children will be able to receive them for their entire stay at the school)?
  • Exactly what kind of training do your teachers have? What training do they have in gifted education?
  • Are your teachers trained to differentiate between students according to learning needs?

Print this list

  • Do your teachers have specialized training in gifted education, and will they be offered ongoing training in this field?
  • In what specific ways is your curriculum different from ordinary curricula (for non-gifted students)? Is it accelerated (or condensed), and if so, how? Is it enriched, and if so, how?
  • Are your standards of evaluation different than in non-gifted programs?
  • Do you make any in-class adaptations for gifted students who don’t fit the typical mold of their fellow classmates?
  • If your child needs it: do you offer in-class special needs support?
  • Do you offer out-of-class enrichment opportunities such as independent studies, mentorships, specialty subjects, career exploration, and leadership opportunities?
  • What kinds of resources are available to students (libraries, homework help, tutoring, and counselling services)?
  • What opportunities are there to interact with students not in the gifted program?
  • Are there any chances for students to do Advanced Placement courses?

Print this list



It’s best to first discuss these questions with the admissions officer. You can then speak to school directors or principals, as well as teachers. It’s also a good idea to attend one or more classes to get a sense of how they’re run, teaching philosophies, school culture, and the like.

If you want to ask these questions of many schools in one place, look into attending one of our private school expos.

If you’re seeking specific in-class adaptations for your child at their current school, no formal application process is usually involved. In some cases, you can simply make the request to the teacher. If the teacher is willing and able to make the necessary adaptations, they will do so (with your consent).

On the other hand, if your child is trying to get into a new school, there will be a formal application process. The application materials required will be similar to those required for any private school. These may include:

  • Photo identification.
  • Application fee or deposit.
  • Report cards from the student’s previous school(s).
  • Transcripts from the student’s previous school(s).
  • Portfolios of a student’s schoolwork.

In some cases, though, they may also include:

  • Standardized tests such as the SSAT.
  • IQ or aptitude tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) or the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale (SB). (Scoring in the 98th percentile is a good rule of thumb for qualifying as “gifted,” though each private school will have its own criteria and way of interpreting results.)
  • Psychoeducational assessments.
  • Entrance essays.
  • Interviews with the child, parents, and previous teachers.
  • In-class teacher diagnoses.
  • Statement detailing student’s history, including personality, academic history, and parents’ financial standing.

The application process for different gifted schools and programs varies widely. Generally, when applying to gifted programs of any kind, the school will try to understand your child’s full cognitive, academic, and social/emotional profile. This helps in deciding how, or whether, a school can adapt its instruction to meet your child’s special learning needs—their strengths and weaknesses.

The right mindset to have is that the school is working with you, not against you. For more general advice on applying to private schools, see our “getting in” guide.

The role of teachers

The quality of gifted programming will always be closely linked to the quality of the teachers running it. Teachers with the expertise to tailor instruction to the learning needs of advanced students can often provide the right kind of programming. On the other hand, teachers without this expertise often can’t.

This is especially true in a regular class where instruction is modified. Teachers will need to be able to recognize that a student has unique learning needs and be able to make the necessary changes. Since teachers vary in their ability to do this, there will be great diversity in the quality of in-class gifted programming.

Thus it’s important to inquire about the credentials and abilities of teachers. You should ask school officials whether teachers have specialized training and experience in gifted education. You should also ask whether teachers are offered any form of ongoing professional development, such as classes, workshops, or seminars in gifted education.



Some private schools offer needs-based financial aid or bursaries. This means that, if you can demonstrate a need for it, the school will cover either a part or all of tuition for your gifted child.

A school’s decision to grant needs-based aid is not tied to academic performance or giftedness. Nor does asking for aid affect your child’s chances of admission. In most cases, a school will first decide who they want to admit, and only then turn to the question of aid. Also, most schools will have a third party assess a family’s financial aid application. The third party will then recommend to the school how much aid, if any, they should offer.

Remember that schools offer aid because they want a diverse and talented student body. This is especially true for schools for gifted students.

If you are unsure if you would be eligible for aid, you should ask. Schools that offer aid often tell us parents underestimate the availability of aid. Paying for private school can strain even the most comfortable middle-class family, and schools know this.

Financial aid applications are typically very thorough, and you’ll need an organized record of your finances to apply. They often ask for information about family income, real estate assets, mortgages, vehicles, investments (including RRSPs), liabilities, expenses, and even information about child support received. Once again, typically this information is reviewed, confidentially, by a third-party company, who then makes recommendations to the school.

You should begin researching financial aid early by visiting private school websites and calling schools.

Merit-based scholarships

Some students receive scholarships for attending a private school, which is a merit-based form of financial support. Based on specific criteria, such as past academic performance, extracurricular activities, and potential to contribute to the school’s values, your gifted child may receive a scholarship to help finance their education.

That said, most schools don’t offer scholarships, and the scholarships that are offered often only provide partial coverage of private school costs (such as a reduction in tuition fees). We list some of the available scholarships here.
