Gifted Programs

  • Lindbergh Gifted Education provides higher-level learning opportunities for intellectually and academically exceptional students in grades K-12. Our program features two challenging options, LEAP and PEGS. LEAP offers enrichment opportunities for district students, while PEGS meets the needs of exceptionally gifted students throughout the St. Louis metro area.

    Our curriculum consists of thematic, multidisciplinary units that encourage exploration and investigation, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. We recognize that gifted students should have the opportunity to regularly interact with their intellectual peers without isolating them from a traditional school environment.

    LEAP

    LEAP is the gifted education program for Lindbergh Schools. Identified students in grades K-5 attend classes once a week at the LEAP Center, located on the lower level of Sperreng Middle School. The LEAP curriculum consists of thematic, multidisciplinary units that encourage exploration and investigation, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. LEAP students in grades 6-8 participate in program activities as part of their daily school schedule, while high school participants enjoy seminars, elective classes and college resources.

    PEGS

    The St. Louis Regional Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students (PEGS) offers curricular acceleration and enrichment opportunities for exceptionally gifted students in grades 1-12. PEGS provides a challenging curriculum that enables these students to be creative producers, socially adjusted individuals and effective leaders. The PEGS program is located at Kennerly Elementary School, Sperreng Middle School and Lindbergh High School.
