Accelerated Curriculum & Enrichment (ACE)
To provide flexible and innovative teaching and learning environments where students have the opportunity to delve deeper into the content of the curriculum, experience different processes of learning, and facilitate exploration and discovery at appropriate levels.
We believe that a student’s talents manifest themselves in multiple ways across all cultural and economic strata and at different times during a student’s academic journey.
We believe that all students should be educated and nurtured in a climate where their talents and potential are valued and fostered.
We believe that all students should be supported and challenged by a program of study with rigorous and relevant curriculum so that students can achieve at levels commensurate with their intellect and ability and reach their full potential.
We believe that all students who exhibit exceptional intellect or who perform, or have demonstrated the potential to perform, at superior levels when compared to others of their age, experience, and/or environment in academic disciplines should have advanced learning opportunities available to them.
ACE Students Defined in BSD2
Students, children, or youth who give evidence of high achievement capability in areas such as intellectuals in specific academic fields, and who need services and activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop those capabilities.
