It is the belief of the Henry County Schools that all students have the right to develop their talents and abilities to the fullest. Embodied in this belief is the commitment to gifted and talented students who possess learning characteristics and needs that differ from those of their chronological peers. The mission of gifted education is to maximize the potential of gifted and talented students by providing programs and services that accommodate these differences, including curriculum responsive to individual learning rates, styles, and complexity. Identification and eligibility procedures are established through guidance from the Georgia Department of Education.
Henry County Public Schools Gifted and Talented Department works with schools to provide an array of services that promote advanced learning for all students and meet the specific needs of students who have been identified as academically gifted. These services include Gifted Education Services, Honors coursework, Advanced Placement, and the Governor's Honors Program.
