In keeping with the mission of Carmel Clay Schools to effectively meet the educational needs of all students, the elementary Challenge program offers differentiated instruction for high ability students whose general intellect and academic achievement are significantly beyond their peers. The Challenge program serves gifted learners in grades 2-5 by providing an accelerated and enriched curriculum as well as instructional strategies especially designed to help them realize their individual potential. Additional information about the program, identification criteria and process, and frequently asked questions is available at the district’s High-Ability website.
