- ACE Academy is an independent, private school that offers gifted programming from Pre-K to 8th grade.
- Established in 2005, ACE Academy educates an underserved community of learners in Austin, Texas.
- A commonly accepted statistic is that gifted learners are those who score in the top 5% of IQ tests.
- A GT student can vary radically in specific abilities or areas (asynchronous development).
- Because GT children process information differently from the average student, they need a learning environment flexible enough to meet and encourage these differences.
- Their unique ways of thinking are assets that must be valued and encouraged, or they may be suppressed, hidden, or lost.
