    Hello GT Parents!

    It's almost time for our End-of-Year Showcase!

    Hope to see you there.

    If you have any questions about G/T services at our campus, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thank you!

    Ms. Flanagan


    At Simon Middle School, teachers are trained to use Depth and Complexity, which helps support our Gifted and Talented (G/T) students to deepen their comprehension and understanding across all content areas.

    “The Depth and Complexity Icons are visual prompts designed to help students go beyond surface level understanding of a concept and enhance their ability to think critically. These critical thinking tools help students dig deeper into a concept (depth) and understand that concept with greater complexity.” Source:
