Gifted Education

Dinwiddie County Public Schools seeks to create and nurture a community of life-long learners by providing progressive educational opportunities and challenging experiences that are responsive to the unique needs and talents of all gifted students.

DCPS Gifted Programs strives to identify K-12 students who are eligible and provide instructional services to meet their needs.  We have developed a comprehensive plan for the education of gifted students that includes many components which is available in our Dinwiddie Gifted Plan 2017-2022.
