Talent Development Services

The New Prague Area School District is proud to provide all students with opportunities for appropriate academic challenge throughout district-wide differentiation initiative.  Identified Gifted, Talented, and High Achieving elementary students are additionally clustered together within a heterogeneous (mixed ability classroom) lead by a teacher specially trained to meet their unique needs.  Clustering identified students allows for student interaction with both similar age and ability peers throughout the school day.  Our district uses the MCA, FAST, common formative assessments, Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment, CogAT, and teacher observation when identifying students for this cluster.  Gifted, Talented and High Achieving middle and high school students have additional opportunities to enroll in higher level classes designed to meet their needs.
