What is QUEST?
QUEST is an acronym for Quality Utilization and Enrichment of Student Talents.
It is a program designed to meet the needs of students who excel or show potential to excel in a combination of two areas as defined by the state of Texas:
- creative and productive thinking
- high general intellectual ability
The QUEST program is developmental in scope, with the curriculum addressing core content areas through projects and units that cross multiple subject areas. QUEST students have the opportunity to investigate topics of interest to them in greater depth and complexity. Students expand their abilities to apply critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, and research skills through individual and group projects, studies and problem-solving units.
In the elementary grades, QUEST students participate in a pull-out program in which they spend at least two hours of instructional time each week in a gifted curriculum with their campus’ QUEST teacher.
