Gifted Education Services in BSD

  • The Brandywine School District recognizes the rights of all students to an education that provides for maximum development of their academic potential.  Students who show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of academic accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment may require support services which offer opportunities for acceleration and enrichment beyond those usually offered.  Outstanding academic gifts and talents are present in children and youth from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.

    In the Brandywine School District, gifted services are offered in specific schools for grades K-8. Students identified for gifted education attend the school listed for their grade level.  

    Grades K-3    Mount Pleasant Elementary School
    Grades 4-5    Claymont Elementary School
    Grades 6-8    P.S. duPont Middle School

    Bus transportation is provided throughout the Brandywine School District for students receiving gifted education services regardless of their home feeder pattern.  Teachers and counselors help students and families ease transitions between schools. Students may qualify for gifted education services at any grade level and typically continue to receive gifted education services from year to year, provided they are meeting with success.
