CATS is a program exclusively dedicated to gifted education, providing inquiry based instruction in a challenging, nurturing, and supportive environment in classes throughout the Chandler Unified School District for grades Kindergarten through eight.
In a CATS classroom, students are creating, envisioning, solving, and collaborating. With the understanding that gifted children learn differently, sometimes rapidly, sometimes asynchronously, teachers build on student strengths to allow learners to explore knowledge at an appropriate rate. With exposure to a variety of resources and methods of instruction, students gain not only advanced knowledge, but also appreciate the depth and complexity of those topics.
The Chandler Unified School District is committed to the encouragement of excellence and optimal academic talent development among our gifted students. We believe providing a comprehensive curriculum and a dedicated staff is essential to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our gifted students and to maximize their potential.
