Mission Statement

Believing that intelligence plus character is the true goal of education, our mission is to guide individual students to maximize their full, intellectual potential.

By empowering them to use their unique gifts and talents, tempering those gifts with knowledge, skills and opportunity, we will enable our students to be responsible and contributing members of a dynamic society.

Vision Statement

We believe that all children are entitled to receive a comprehensive education that meets the needs for all types of learners. Colangelo, Assouline and Gross (2004) argued in their national research- based report (A Nation Deceived: How Schools Hold Back America’s Brightest Students), “America’s schools routinely avoid academic acceleration, the easiest and most effective way to help highly capable students.” All children should receive a challenge appropriate to their preparedness and motivation.

L. Hollingworth School for Talented and Gifted (LHSTG) is designed to support academic acceleration by providing personalized support, authentic assessment, and school-wide differentiated, learning activities. We believe that every child who demonstrates the capability for high achievement in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, areas of creativity, art, or leadership and who needs services and activities not satisfactorily provided by their school district, deserves an opportunity to learn in this type of educational environment where students will be given the opportunity to fully develop their capabilities and unique gifts.

At LHSTG, our vision focuses on four founding offerings:

Flexible grouping practices to allow children to advance at their own pace.

Pupils are advanced to a higher-level class covering material more suited to the pupils' abilities and preparedness.

Students spend a portion of their time receiving specialized, gifted services, and the rest of their time with same grade students of varying abilities.

Students receive extra material or projects designed to challenge them in the following areas:
1. Community Involvement
2. Business Development
3. Technology

Extracurricular Activities
Chess, Sports, Foreign Languages, Art or Music and Garden Club.
