A PROGRAM FOR THE GIFTED STUDENT IN THE ABINGTON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
GLATTHORN, ALLAN A.; MANONE, CARL J.
A SOUND HONORS PROGRAM IN THE HIGH SCHOOL HAS PROVEN SUCCESSFUL ONLY WHEN BUILT UPON A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM FOR HIGHLY ABLE STUDENTS BEGUN IN THE ELEMENTARY GRADES AND CONTINUED THROUGHOUT THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL. IN ORDER FOR THIS COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM TO OPERATE AT ALL LEVELS, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO ESTABLISH COORDINATION IN THREE MAJOR AREAS. THESE AREAS ARE COORDINATION WITHIN A SUBJECT AREA, COORDINATED SEQUENCES AND COURSE OFFERINGS WITHIN THE ENTIRE CURRICULUM, AND COORDINATION IN THE MECHANICS AND ORGANIZATION OF THE GIFTED PROGRAM ITSELF. AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL GIFTED STUDENTS RECEIVE BENEFITS FROM SEVERAL PLANNED PROGRAMS. THE COCURRICULAR PROGRAM PROVIDES A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES, CLUBS, AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS TO SUPPLEMENT CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION. SOME PHASES OF THE COCURRICULAR PROGRAM INCLUDE SEMINARS, LEADERSHIP TRAINING WORKSHOPS, SUMMER SCHOOL, INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP GUIDANCE, AND COLLEGE AND CAREER CONFERENCES. OTHER PROGRAMS DESIGNED FOR THE GIFTED PUPIL INCLUDE THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM, THE COLLEGE RESOURCE PROGRAM, EARLY ADMISSIONS PROGRAM, THE STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM, AND THE TUTORING AND INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAM.
