"The School for the Talented and Gifted is one of the greatest high schools in the country."
–Jay Matthews, Newsweek Contributing Editor and Washington Post reporter.
The mission of the School for the Talented and Gifted is to provide an environment in which the unique worth, dignity, and abilities of each individual are not only recognized but cultivated and celebrated as well. We wish to provide an educational experience that empowers highly capable students to interact with their intellectual peers in academic, creative, aesthetic, and social endeavors in order to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow and to become life-long learners, responsible citizens, and contributors to the betterment of society as a whole in an ever-changing world. Our mission is also to take our students and provide them with the skills and cultivate their talents so they can be accepted into the colleges/universities of their choice with the money to go there and to be successful at those institutions of higher learning.
