The Gifted Program

Binks Forest Elementary has a full-time gifted center which serves gifted students from other elementary schools in the Wellington area. Presently there are two or more teachers of the gifted at each grade level, many of whom teach as a team. The curriculum in the gifted program is based on the Florida Sunshine State Standards and Palm Beach County Grade Level Expectations. The curriculum is then enriched and/or accelerated as appropriate. Specialized instruction strategies are used to promote and develop creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
