Challenge:  Gifted and Talented Program 

Challenge is the KISD Gifted and Talented Program.  We use a "pull-out" model for our classes and meet one day a week.  The class focuses on general intellectual ability using a theme-based advanced curriculum with high interest units.  Students enjoy creative problem solving.
