• Deer Valley Gifted Services is expanding our programming for the 2022-23 school year at our Las Brisas campus. You are receiving this letter because your child qualifies for one of the new Bright Beginnings Early Learning programs. Your child scored at the 90th percentile or higher in one of the state approved areas of giftedness. This score will allow gifted placement in our 1st and 2nd grade program. We are including information on this opportunity as well as our preschool and kindergarten opportunities below.

    Bright Beginnings Grades 1&2

    Las Brisas Gifted Academy’s Bright Beginnings program provides hands-on learning opportunities for our early childhood learners. Qualifying students in grades preschool through grade 2, are placed in a classroom with other children of similar abilities and with a gifted endorsed teacher. During their time in Bright Beginnings, students are immersed in a literacy-rich classroom, engage in inquiry based learning, and are exposed to world languages. Students will participate in unique STEAM specials classes as well as experience different world languages all in a smaller than average class size.

    At the end of 2nd grade, students will be re-assessed to see what gifted programming they qualify for in third grade and above. The programming includes the Renaissance Highly Gifted & Global Studies Academy! Other placement rounds will follow. Space is currently limited in many grade levels, and no placements will be made after 2nd quarter begins each school year.
