While all children have gifts and talents, not all children are considered academically gifted. North Canton City Schools understands the need for educational accommodations for those students who demonstrate exceptional cognitive, academic, creative thinking, and or visual/performing arts talent or skills. We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the needs of our gifted and talented students. We recognize their significant achievements in the academics and the arts and provide them with advanced learning opportunities to help them cultivate their interests and continue to achieve at their highest level.
- In 2019 NCCS was one of 50 out of 608 districts in the state of Ohio that MET the gifted indicator on the state report card.
Gifted identification begins as early as Kindergarten for North Canton students. Students who are identified as gifted are offered a variety of service programs and options, including service through gifted intervention specialists, general education teachers, and trained arts specialists.
