EDUCATION FOR GIFTED YOUNG LEARNERS
The Lower School at ACE Academy serves students from 5 to 10 years old, corresponding to Kindergarten to 4th grade.
Beginning at a young age, gifted students can often surge in some subject areas and need more guidance, practice, and patience in others. ACE's Lower School allows for the development of gifted learners providing them with individualized instruction to meet their academic, social and emotional needs.
Age and Ability Grouping
At ACE, gifted students are able to be with same-age peers, while learning at an academically advanced level. Within our small classrooms of no more than 12 students, teachers implement differentiation strategies (product, process, content) to tailor individual learning. Through formal and informal assessments, teachers recognize when a child needs something different and have the flexibility to group students in arrangements that are best suited for their learning outcome.
This allows for the development of their social skills and leadership traits, while challenging these eager young learners in their studies
