    Travis Elementary
    At Travis, programming is designed to meet the needs of all our varied learners. The Vanguard program provides a learning continuum for gifted and talented (GT) students that is differentiated in depth, complexity, and pacing and fosters creative/productive thinking and/or leadership ability. All Travis teachers are GT certified and trained in these guiding principles, which form the foundation of our instructional approach. In all classrooms, instruction is accelerated and adjusted as necessary to accommodate all student ability levels and learning styles.
