How do gifted students get their needs met?
Enrichment
-Hopewell offers monthly field trips to provide opportunities for your child to enrich their knowledge in areas of interest.  The Coordinator tries to have 2 theatrical performances during the year as well as museums, tours, demonstrations, and workshops.
   
Acceleration 
- If students are accelerated in a subject Hopewell has dual enrollment opportunities at Penn State Beaver and Robert Morris University.
- Sophomores may apply to take classes from Robert Morris during our Saturday program. The courses are taken during the Junior year and will give the students a chance to earn up to 15 college credits.
 
Talent development
- Student participation in extracurricular activities can  help students develop better attitudes toward school and long-term educational and occupational success.
- Providing opportunities for  your child's talent to progress can help develop better self esteem,
Critical thinking & Problem solving
- All children should have their critical thinking and problem solving skills challenged each and everyday.  This is even more imperative in a gifted mind.  Gifted children are constantly seeking the why and how of the world around them.  They need to understand not only the whole picture but all of its parts.
- Providing challenges and projects for the gifted student is a goal of the Gifted Coordinator.  There are many competitions and group activities that students can choose to participate in to have this need met.
 
 
Enrichment: to supply with abundance of anything desirable OR to add greater value or significance to.
 
Accelerate: to reduce the time required for (a course of study) by intensifying the work OR to cause faster or greater activity, development, progress, or advancement.
