What is F.L.A.M.E.?

FLAME (Fostering Learning Abilities in Marion Education), aka Gifted, is a pull out program for academically talented & gifted students.  Students who are intellectually gifted have learning needs that go beyond what is traditionally offered in the regular classroom. This requires advanced & differentiated curriculum, teaching methods, and additional opportunities for self-study & exploration. Their unique needs are met through experiences which provide experiential learning, deeper study of topics in their areas of talent & interest, and accelerated academic curriculum.

F.L.A.M.E. classes will include, but not be limited to the following:

  • higher-order thinking skills
  • independent learning
  • problem solving
  • creative expression
  • advanced communication
  • career exploration
  • leadership & service
  • social emotional learning
