    SHMS Gifted
     
    Strath Haven Middle School educators understand the important roles we play in the educational experience of our gifted learners. It is our job to provide these students with an experience that will prepare them academically, socially, and emotionally to be the next wave of creative problem solvers, producers of knowledge, and leaders in their chosen fields. To accomplish this, we must take a holistic approach, one in which we don't just focus on content acquisition, but provide opportunities to develop character traits such as perseverance, curiosity, determination, and will power. In-class enrichment and gifted seminar provide SHMS students with opportunities to develop the skills that they will need to be successful, no matter what path they choose.
