The gifted and talented program at P.S. 15 offers students an enriching, project-based and experiential learning environment that encourages guided discovery, creative problem-solving, and exploration across reading, writing, math, social studies, science, and the arts.
Gifted and talented students at P.S. 15 act as designers and architects in math utilizing pattern blocks, 3-D shapes, and other math manipulatives to build architectural and interior structures; become authors as they write non-fiction chapter books on various animal groups; or inquisitive scientists, creating Venn diagrams and full scale collages to compare and contrast habitats. They also think as artists, connecting literacy and the arts, exploring abstract art, diorama construction, and creating their own textured paint.
