The Dibble Elementary School community is committed to helping each child reach their potential.
We envision a community where all students become lifelong learners.
4-5th Grade Gifted and Talented Cluster Groups
All third grade students at JPS are tested in spring and evaluated for our gifted program. At Dibble School we meet the needs of gifted and talented students within a regular classroom setting. We call this a ‘Cluster Group’, where a cluster of gifted students are grouped in a traditional classroom.
The entire class will receive instruction from the JPS curriculum using differentiated instruction. Gifted students will be challenged and encouraged to excel in all subject areas. Every student, regardless of their ability, comes with different background experiences, learning styles and academic strengths. Teachers of ‘Cluster Group’ classrooms have received additional training in how to best teach and bring the most out of our very bright students. Meeting the needs of our gifted students is a high priority in the classroom and an important part of our mission as a school.
