gifted program

A gifted child is one who demonstrates potential for high levels of achievement by having an advanced level of cognitive ability as compared to others of his/her age.

Gifted programming in District 62 consists of 90 minutes of pull-out instruction each week; this 90 minutes may consist of 2 45-minute classes or 3 30-minute classes.

The gifted curriculum has a literacy foundation with a focus on science, technology, and social studies where classroom instruction supports literacy, math, and social-emotional needs of your child

Spanish as a world language

We are excited to share that starting with the 2023-2024 school year, all current 6th-grade students will be offered the choice to sign up for Spanish during their 7th-grade year. 

There are many benefits to being bilingual and our Spanish program at the middle school allows students to begin the journey of learning a second language.

Multi-Tiered Support

Multi-tiered Systems Of Support, MTSS, also often referred to as response to intervention (RtI), recognizes that academic and behavioral functioning are intertwined.

MTSS describes the varying levels of support each student will access based on their academic and social-emotional learning needs.

All students participate in our core program of learning dedicated to high quality engagement with grade level learning standards, referred to as “Tier 1.” MTSS can include positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS).

Multilingual / English Learners

School District 62 is committed to providing a high quality English Learners (ELs) program that values a student's native language and culture. Only sound acquisition of linguistic, academic, and social skills ensures your child's equal participation in our diverse society.
