The Prekindergarten Gifted Program is an educational program for children between the ages of 3 and 5 who are identified as gifted by the East Baton Rouge Parish School System. Prekindergarten classes provide a high degree of complexity and extend beyond the prescribed curriculum offered in regular classes. Classes are taught by teachers certified in Prekindergarten Gifted Education and have a reduced class size in order to individualize each student’s educational program.
Parents can call Pupil Appraisal Services directly to schedule screening for their child at (225) 929-8600.
