Gifted and Talented

Welcome to Everitt Gifted & Talented


What do our Everitt students say?

“I like that the teachers know that everyone learns in different ways and that’s ok. They let us learn in our own way and we get to go deeper that way and it can be really fun and challenging all at the same time. I really like being here.”
“ All the teachers are fun and happy. They teach really well and have high expectations. They teach to a variety of students who are pleased with the way that they are taught.”
“I love Everitt. It is a great place to learn!”

What do our Everitt families say? 

“Everitt brings out your child’s strengths and provides an environment for them to love learning and being at school. Everitt inspired my son to be his best self.” “When I ask my son how he likes Everitt, “He says, he loves it.” Everyday he talks about something exciting he has learned about that day. At his previous middle school, he was just trying to survive until high school. Now he is thriving in all areas!” Thank you, Everitt!! "Everitt is a family that will boost your child's confidence academically, socially, and emotionally. It teaches outside the box, in fact teaches your child how to build and choose their own box."
