The New Prague Area School District is proud to provide all students with opportunities for appropriate academic challenges.  Identified Gifted, The New Prague Area School District is proud to provide all students with opportunities for appropriate academic challenges. Identified Gifted, Talented, and High Achieving elementary students are clustered together within a heterogeneous (mixed ability classroom) lead by a teacher specially trained and supported 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 FAST, common formative assessments, the 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 advanced and higher level classes designed to meet their needs.
