Gifted Cluster and Advanced Classrooms
South Ocala Elementary believes that ALL students achieve when the learning experience is personalized and intentionally planned to inspire, challenge, and motivate! We provide a uniquely designed educational experience to ensure that each student:
- Develops a solid foundation for a successful educational career.
- Fully participates in rigorous academic conversations focused on discovering more about the world and their place in it.
- Builds lasting relationships with intellectual peers, teachers, and other role models.
- Broadens a self-awareness that includes citizenship, positive social change, and personal accountability.
As part of the Success at SOE experience, students learn and apply organizational skills, time management skills, and project-based learning. They are responsible for co-creating a plan for learning, maximizing the use of materials and resources in self-directed work, and using rubrics, guidelines, and other frameworks to self-evaluate their progress toward learning goals.
