Gifted Education

Welcome to the Bozeman School District site for Gifted Education. During the 2007-08 school year, a gifted steering committee, comprised of parents, teachers, counselors and administrators, convened to create a mission and philosophy and strategic plan. The work of this committee is ongoing and guides our annual action plans so that we are able to create a robust program based on individual needs and differentiated instruction in the classroom. 

Mission and Philosophy

Gifted Students possess academic talents and abilities that differ from those of their peers to such a degree that opportunities must be provided to help them develop to their greatest potential. In keeping with the Bozeman Public Schools' goal to offer instructional programs that address differences in abilities, needs, and learning styles of all students, the Bozeman Board of Education is committed to the identification of gifted students and to providing appropriate educational experiences for those students.


The Bozeman School District has established the following goals for Gifted Education:

  • To utilize a range of assessment instruments to recognize the students who are academically and/or intellectually gifted within the Bozeman School District
  • To provide an array of service delivery options to meet the diverse needs of the students who are recognized academically and/or intellectually gifted in the Bozeman School District
  • To provide, for all certified staff and administrators, professional development that reinforces the goal and objectives of the gifted education plan
  • To actively involve parents, school faculty/staff and community representatives in the continuous improvement of the gifted education plan
  • To increase public awareness of gifted education plan

We invite you to learn about gifted education in BSD7 by reviewing the available links on our webpage. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or principal.

Most sincerely,

Wendy Morical Lena Wessel
