Advanced Academics (Gifted and Talented)

  • The Houston Independent School District provides two program options for Gifted and Talented students.
    1. The Vanguard Magnet program is designed to meet the needs of G/T students in grades K-12 by providing an environment for students to work with their cognitive peers.
    2. The Vanguard Neighborhood Programs (formerly known as Neighborhood G/T) are designed to meet the needs of G/T students in grades K-12 at their neighborhood (zoned) schools.

    Both Vanguard Magnet and Vanguard Neighborhood programs provide a differentiated curriculum by modifying the depth, complexity, and pacing of the general school program.
