Walt Disney Magnet School Gifted Program
Walt Disney’s Gifted Program was designed to serve our top performing students. It is an academically challenging program in which students are introduced to concepts using a variety of teaching methodologies. There is emphasis on an accelerated pace, enriched curriculum, critical thinking and real life applications. The program also encourages student creativity and self-expression. We believe that children learn from each other, hence the underlying philosophy for our gifted track. The expectations and rigorous work load for students in this program require an additional commitment from both students and parents.
Our teachers share the commitment to provide learning that is accelerated as well as stimulating. This program is suited to students that are highly motivated and talented.
We are proud to be a member of the Chicago Public School Comprehensive Gifted Program.
