Gifted Education Program
How is gifted defined?

The Lima City Schools uses the federal definition as a model and defines gifted students as students who perform, or show potential, for performing at remarkable levels of accomplishments when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment, and who are identified under section 3324.03 of the Ohio Revised Code.

How are children identified as gifted?

The Lima City Schools identifies gifted students in grades K-12 in one or more of the following areas:
  • Superior Cognitive Ability
  • Specific Academic Ability
  • Creative Thinking Ability
  • Visual or Performing Arts Ability

    The Lima City Schools uses assessment instruments that are selected by the Ohio Department of Education to identify gifted students.

    If you believe that your child is gifted, you may:
  • Call your child’s school teacher or principal
  • Complete the required paperwork to ask that your child
    be evaluated
  • Request a copy of the District Policy on Gifted Education

    Gifted learners are given stimulating educational experiences appropriate to their level of ability to assist them in recognizing their potential.

    Gifted services provide an opportunity for academically talented students to reach their fullest potential.

    When given the opportunity gifted students can use their vast amount of knowledge to serve as a background for unlimited learning.

    Providing for our finest minds allows both individual and societal needs to be met.
