Welcome to the GVES Focus Program!
In Stafford County Public Schools, differentiated "gifted" services are provided in elementary through high school for students who have been identified in general intellectual aptitude or in a specific academic aptitude, verbal-linguistic or logical-mathematical. GVES parents, students, and teachers participate in the identification process for the need for gifted educational services, and work together to develop students' abilities/talents through appropriate learning experiences and environments. Identification for the need to deliver gifted services is determined by the use of ability tests, student work samples, parent survey, student observation/interview, and teacher observation. If you believe that your child has exceptional ability in any of the above areas, or you would like more information, please contact me.
