The basic goals of the Rice Independent School District are to prepare our students to live in and adapt to an ever-changing complex future and to provide knowledge base on which to build lifelong learning.  We recognize that some students possess exceptional abilities to create, to achieve, and to understand ideas beyond their years. Other students possess untapped potential for creativity, achievement, and understanding.  Through the Gifted and Talented Program, our goal is to guide students to sharpen their abilities and to motivate students to tap into their unrealized potential.

The goals and objectives of the program for gifted/talented will focus on general intellectual abilities and divergent thinking processes and will allow for independent study and in-depth research on the part of the student.  Emphasis and opportunities will vary within the core curriculum with depth, complexity, and appropriate pacing added. At the elementary level (grades K-5), the program will emphasize a multi-disciplinary approach and curriculum in grades 6-12 will have differentiated activities and materials in various disciplines.

Donna Gipson is the Gifted and Talented Director for the 5th grade at Rice IMS.   This is her second year as director.  Fifth grade G/T students work on general intellectual abilities and divergent thinking that will allow for independent study and in-depth research on the part of the student.  One of the programs that we use is the Destination Imagination Contest.  This is a challenging opportunity for the students to create, write, design, and present a solution to a given situation.  The 5th grade has done well in this contest placing an overall 3rd in the region.  We look forward to placing again this year.
