Gifted and Talented Program

Wellman-Union ISD is committed to serving the educational, psychological, and social needs of all students.  The district will strive to provide experiences that are consistent with the abilities and potential of the child.  Every student will be encouraged and challenged to surpass the essential learning objectives as abilities, interests, and life goals allow.

Wellman-Union ISD defines gifted and talented as any child or youth in grades K-12 who performs at, or shows the potential for performing at, a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who
