Welcome to the Panther Gifted Program!
Payne Junior High School is proud to offer CATS team 700/800 for Gifted and Talented Students on our campus! The Panther Gifted Program offers a rigorous, accelerated curriculum for our 7th and 8th grade students while also promoting a supportive classroom environment. Students have the opportunity to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills through dynamic and thought-provoking learning activities. It is our hope that our CATS students are prepared socially, emotionally, and academically for the Honors and AP/IB high school programs and beyond.
