Miami-Dade Cities have High Gifted Student Rates
A recent article in Miami Herald noted that Miami-Dade boosted the highest number of gifted students of any city in Florida other than Sarasota and Alachua. The county’s gifted population in the last decade has grown by more than 50% with 10% of the population identified as gifted. There are double the number of gifted students in Miami-
Dade than in Broward or Palm Beach Counties. In 2006 Miami-Dade embarked on a program to make identification and improved programming for the gifted a priority. Now, one in four students in Miami-Dade qualify as gifted.
Seeking the input of education experts an advanced system of identifying gifted students, developing appropriate teaching methods, along with training parents and teachers the school system is now able to properly educate the Miami-Dade students who qualify as gifted. Admission to these classes is by testing, classroom achievement, and teacher observations and recommendations. To accommodate the growing gifted population the county has developed a series of “gifted hubs” such as MAST Academy (Maritime and Science Technology) on Key Biscayne, and SAS (School for Advanced Studies) a dual enrollment high school program in collaboration with Miami-Dade College along with special sections of classes for the gifted in their traditional neighborhood schools.
