Gifted and Talented:  STRIVE
LHISD recognizes students from all ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups regardless of existing handicaps or disabilities may demonstrate an exceptional ability in academics or divergent thinking.

Therefore, LHISD has adopted policies and designed programs to address the unique needs of those students identified as gifted and/or talented (**) by a local review committee.  Identified gifted and talented students are provided with on-going educational services through the district’s gifted/talented program STRIVE (Strengthening Talents, Reasoning, and Intellect through Varied Experiences).

It is the goal of LHISD to ensure all such students are provided with a variety of educational experiences which support their individual potential for excellence.   

“When we limit the opportunities of a single child….We limit the possibilities for all mankind.”

If you have questions regarding the STRIVE program, please contact our campus STRIVE teachers: Wendy Pleak and Tamra Warner. Campus and District contacts can be found at: STRIVE Contacts
