Gifted and Talented Program


The Gifted and Talented Program of Calhoun County School District serves students in grades 3 through 12. Students served in the program are provided a challenging curriculum that affords them an opportunity to reach their maximum potential.

Parents and teachers may refer students in grades 3-8 to be screened for the gifted program. The results of the screening will be used to determine eligibility for the gifted program for the upcoming school year. Screening/referral forms will be available in the Guidance Office at the school and must be submitted by the end of March each year.

Initial testing will take place during the fall of the school year. Because the screening process is multifaceted and because some students may require additional testing, final results may not be available until the end of the school year. Students who qualify will be eligible for placement in the gifted and talented program the upcoming school year. Parents will be notified if their child qualifies for placement in the program.


Important Information about Grade Two:

Second grade students do not need to be referred for screening for the academic Gifted and       Talented program. All second grade students will undergo aptitude and achievement testing during the Fall of the school year. Parents of second grade students will receive notification if the student either automatically or partially qualifies for the gifted program.

Congratulations to our Teacher of  the Year Mrs. Lauren Nickells!!!

 Mrs. Lauren Nickells is married to Mr. Tim with a little girl (Lainey) on the way. They have two dogs, Jax and Weiler, and live in St. Matthews. She is a certified first grade teacher with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education and graduated from the University of South Carolina. This is her ninth year of teaching. Five of those years were spent teaching pre-kindergarten in Columbia and four in first grade here at Sandy Run. When she is not teaching, she enjoys being outdoors and spending time with her family and friends. She is committed to helping children find their "why" inside and outside of the classroom while making learning rewarding and fun! Mrs. Nickells loves what she does and enjoys the people and children she is blessed to work with every day!
