HENDERSON, Nev., July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When local businesswoman Bita Nasri began searching for early education programs that could support her gifted children, she discovered that there were no elementary schools in Southern Nevada specializing in gifted education. After devoting two years to research and investigation, Bita came to understand that gifted children have very specialized social, emotional, and academic needs - so she decided to start a school that could serve this unique and underserved population of young learners. Bita's dream will come to life in September of 2016 with the opening of Nasri Academy for Gifted Children, the only elementary school for gifted students in Southern Nevada.
What is a Gifted Child?
On top of possessing an advanced intellect, with an IQ score of 130 or above, gifted children tend to be highly sensitive, preoccupied with their own thoughts, deeply curious with vivid imaginations, and idealists with a sense of social justice (even at a young age.) Nasri Academy addresses the cognitive, affective, academic, and social needs of gifted children by understanding the individual learning styles of each child. This enables Nasri's faculty and staff to cultivate the students' natural love of discovery and encourage their ability to innovate.
Advanced Curriculum for Advanced Thinkers
Nasri's educators are highly trained in gifted education. By utilizing hands-on, collaborative, real-world experiences, students become engaged in advanced and stimulating content. Children are given the time, encouragement, and resources necessary to maximize their learning potential in a happy, healthy environment. In addition to subjects like Science, Math, and Writing, Nasri Academy provides opportunities to study Robotics, Art, Music, Physical Education and a variety of STEM-focused areas – all within a supportive and nurturing environment that caters to gifted students.
