Welcome to Arthur Middleton's Gifted Education Services page!

Charles County Public schools offers gifted services in reading and mathematics for students in grades 3-8.  The identification screening takes places starting in the winter and is completed in the spring of each year. 

Students receiving services in mathematics are placed in the accelerated math program in grades 4 and 5, which is a rigorous fast paced academic program utilizing a 1/2 year to a year above grade level curriculum.  Students meet daily during their math block.  In grade 3, students participate in the Project: Mentoring Mathematical Minds  as an enrichment program beyond their regular curriculum.

Students receiving reading students are instructed using a gifted services curriculum that is implemented within the classroom and/or occasionally in groups outside of the classroom.  This curriculum uses advanced complex literature and non-fiction text designed to promote analytical and critical thinking skills as well as teach the reading skills necessary to be both a strategic and reflective reader and learner.

If your child is new to our school and was identified for gifted services by another school or school system, please inform the school as soon as possible. We will review all transfer records to determine the appropriate instructional placement for your child.
