The Learning Environment at Capitol Hill
At Capitol Hill we recognize the learning and developmental differences of students with gifts and talents. We strive to promote ongoing self-understanding, awareness of their needs, and cognitive and affective growth of the students in our program.
Our teachers create safe learning environments that foster:
- emotional well-being,
- positive social interaction,
- leadership for social change, and
- cultural understanding for success in a diverse society.
Our classrooms are designed to encourage independence, motivation, and self-efficacy of individuals from all backgrounds. We use relevant strategies and technologies to enhance oral, written, and artistic communication of learners whose needs vary based on exceptionality, language proficiency, and cultural and linguistic differences.
Our elementary and middle school programs are designed to exemplify the National Gifted Programming Education Standards and we continually seek to improve the learning experience for our students.
