Jacksonville Beach Elementary is a dedicated magnet program for Gifted and Academically Talented! Students in gifted classes receive full-time gifted services and are clustered together in a class where they receive differentiated instruction every day through the core content areas. Classroom teachers are endorsed by the State of Florida in gifted education and work with the support of a Gifted Learning Lead teacher and/or district support specialists. Instruction and curriculum are designed for the gifted learner. Cluster grouping high-ability learners allows the teacher to compact lessons, enrich content, encourage higher-level thinking and increase complexity in learning. Students are given the opportunity to work at an accelerated pace, have a choice in the way they present learned information, engage in problem-based learning, and practice leadership skills.
