GDHS offers the following placement options for gifted students in Milton/Halton
Resource Support - Secondary Gifted Placement: the student is placed
in a class with a cluster of gifted peers and the teacher receives specialized
consultative services, including additional professional development.
The Ontario curriculum in each of the clustered classes will be differentiated
in breadth, depth and pace from the curriculum being offered in the regular
classes of the same subjects.
Resource Support - Regular Class with Consultative Support: the student
is placed in regular classes and the teacher receives specialized consultative
services. At the secondary level the ‘regular’ class would
be a series of subjects as chosen by the student through the option sheet
process and timetabled accordingly. His/her regular classroom teacher
receives advice/support from a Special Education Teacher to adjust programming
to meet individual needs.
In addition, there is a variety of enrichment opportunities available
to our students, both within the school building, and in the wider community.
Those opportunities range from athletics and extracurriculars, to field
trips, workshops, contests, and much more! At GDHS, we encourage our students
to get involved in all aspects of their high school experience in order
to become well-rounded individuals and leaders of the future.
