Our Mission

Florence Jr Sr High School aims to establish a Gifted and Talented (GT) program that is worthy of our status as a destination district.

This year Gifted students will continue to be challenged in advanced academics via the following classes:

  • Honors 9th, 10th, and 11th grade ELA courses along with dual enrollment Pueblo Community College classes in Language Composition, Technical writing and Creative Writing.
  • Honors 9th grade biology, 10th grade Chemistry, and AP/dual enrollment Environmental Science in Science courses.
  • AP Calculus in Math classes as well as the opportunity for 8th grade students to test into 9th grade Algebra.
  • Dual credit Colorado History and dual credit World History for 10-12th grades in social studies.

This year teachers will receive additional training in student choice and gifted curriculum differentiation within the classroom.
