Gifted Program Mission Statement
It is the mission of the Bennett's Mill Middle School Gifted Department to identify, place, and serve each student meeting Georgia gifted criteria. We seek to enrich, challenge, and stimulate thought, thus stretching the minds and abilities of each of our students to strive for excellence in reaching his/her intellectual potential.
The gifted program at Bennett’s Mill Middle School offers instruction in three academic areas, language arts, science, and social studies. Students have the opportunity to experience all three during their middle school years. All academic course materials are based on the Georgia Performance Standards and are enhanced to enrich, challenge and motivate gifted students.
Fayette County Gifted Continuation Policy
A student’s performance in all gifted classes is reviewed at the end of each semester, earlier if difficulties become evident. Continuation in the Enrichment Program in Fayette County requires a student to meet criteria-specific performance requirements in classes for the gifted as evidenced by participation, completion of assignments, and the maintenance of an average of 80 or better in each gifted class and/or a 70 or better in each Advanced Placement class.
If a student fails to meet the performance requirements in a gifted class, the student will be placed on gifted probation the following semester for that department’s gifted courses. Failure to meet the performance requirements in the same academic area for two consecutive semesters will result in the student being declared ineligible for gifted courses from that department for the entirety of the following semester and placed in a non-gifted core course in the same academic area. The student may regain gifted placement in that department after meeting all continuation requirements. Re-entry may occur only at the beginning of the next 18-week semester. The student is allowed to remain in all other gifted classes as long as all continuation requirements are met.
