The Peyton School District is committed to academic excellence and strives to facilitate academic growth in all students. Gifted students are not an exception. Gifted Students need additional challenges, accelerated curricula and changes in learning environments to meet their diverse needs. Working in cooperation with the Pikes Peak BOCES and under the guidelines from the Colorado Department of Education, the Peyton School District has processes for referring, identifying and meeting the academic and emotional needs of gifted students.
