Why Gifted & Talented?
Bennion Junior High is fully committed to both excellence and equity for all students. Gifted students and high ability learners present a particular challenge to this goal given they may have mastered 50-80% or more of the core curriculum for their grade level before a course of study begins. Therefore, academic growth for these students can only be achieved through differentiated educational services, opportunities, and programs
Why AP classes?
In addition to Gifted and Talented classes, Bennion Junior High offers an Advanced Placement Program(AP). The Advanced Placement Program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-leve studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both — while still in high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. Students who earn a qualifying score on an AP Exam are typically elegible to receive college credit and/or placement into advanced courses in college.
