Tippecanoe School Corporation High Ability Programs Philosophy
Tippecanoe School Corporation recognizes that high ability students are a unique population who need substantial, differentiated programming if they are to achieve their potential. We believe it is the responsibility of schools to identify the individual needs and capabilities of high ability students and then to provide educational experiences that will develop the identified abilities as fully as possible in a supportive climate that encourages excellence.
