Gifted Education

The field of gifted education is rich in research and resources. We are pleased to share some additional resources and sources of information regarding the students that Open Window is dedicated to serve. We also regularly share articles of interest through Twitter @OWSBobcat and the Gifted News section of this website. 
The community of parents and educators of gifted children is wonderfully collaborative; if you find something else of value, please let us know by email or Twitter (@OWSBobcat).

The Robinson Center supports both enrichment and the University of Washington’s early entrance program for gifted high school students. In addition to organizations, here is some specific information that may be helpful:
