Special Education The Garnet Valley School District is committed to providing a full continuum of educational services to all students with special needs. An inclusion setting at all levels accomodates most special education students within the district. In some cases, services are also provided in classes outside the district.
Gifted Programs These programs are available to students who meet multiple criteria, including a measured IQ of 130 or higher. At the primary level, students benefit from an identification/enrichment model. At grades 3-8, students identified as gifted participate in a pullout enrichment seminar. Gifted high school students may select seminar courses which include special events, activities,projects,field trips and lectures. Honors courses are offered at the high school for those who wish to earn college credits.
