Gifted Education in the Milford Schools (G.E.M.S.) takes place via a virtual learning environment. The acronym G.E.M.S. has been adopted as the name of the gifted services in Milford Schools. MOODLE (Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is the course management system used by Milford Schools. The purpose of virtual classes is to provide higher-level curriculum by utilizing technology and critical thinking strategies. Students will have the opportunity to work at their own pace (keeping in mind that there are deadlines), delve deeper into areas above and beyond grade level expectations, and interact with gifted students in other schools.
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5, who are identified gifted by the State of Ohio in reading, math, and/or superior cognitive, will be served through the use of online courses and activities.
