The Monroe County Community School Corporation values differentiated instruction and opportunities for acceleration at all grade levels. These opportunities are available for all students, not just those who are formally identified as high ability. Individual teachers and building principals work to develop the most appropriate educational experience possible for each student, including flexible ability grouping in math and language arts and inquiry based learning. Beginning in kindergarten, all students' intellectual abilities are assessed. For students in grades four through eight who demonstrate exceptional academic and intellectual ability, the MCCSC offers the Accelerated Learning Program for Students or ALPS. In middle and high school, honors and advanced classes are offered.
We comply with the Indiana Code for High Ability Education and the MCCSC's School Board of Trustees High Ability Policy.
