Flippin Public Schools prides itself in having a variety of choices that help to fulfill the needs of all of our students. One of our programs is designed around those students who possess extraordinary skills or talents in academics, arts, music, and other specific interests. Thirty minute enrichment lessons are provided by the GT Coordinator for grades K-3, and pull out classes are provided for those students who display those skills and need further instruction in specific interest and talent areas. This program allows students, who have been assessed for exceptional skills to expand their knowledge through research, participation in Quiz Bowl and/or Chess tournaments, artistic endeavors, and projects of specific interest. In addition to academics, students in the program learn leadership skills and techniques, presentation skills, and social attitudes conducive to successful careers when adults. Field trips are incorporated into the program that introduce students to various career opportunities and to expand their knowledge of our State and our Country.
