The Orange gifted program mission statement is a direct reflection of the Orange City Schools mission statement:
The Orange Schools mission is to foster an academically excellent educational system designed to develop critical thinking and civic-minded students who will contribute to our global society. The system also encourages the support and participation of the community it serves.
We believe and strive to:
Provide a curriculum which challenges each student by incorporating creative problem solving, critical thinking, divergent thinking, interpersonal relationships, logical reasoning, oral expression, research, and written expression.
Provide self-directed, independent and diverse activities, assignments and services, which extend learning beyond the regular classroom curriculum and address individual interests, talents and needs.
The Orange City School District provides a continuum of services to nurture exceptional abilities. Gifted Intervention Specialists work in all buildings and provide small group support for our students.
Additional information regarding program options, qualifications and services is available at the link entitled District Plan for Identification and Service of Gifted Students.
Please note: In compliance with the Ohio Operating Standards, we offer assessment opportunities two times per school year, fall and winter.
The fall gifted referral testing session will take place August 28-September 7, 2018.
The deadline to register for gifted testing for the 2018-2019 school year is
