CASTON'S MISSION STATEMENT FOR HIGH ABILITY PROGRAMS

Caston School Corporation strives to help each student reach his or her fullest potential.  We acknowledge that high achievers need to be active participants in learning and need to be personally involved in having choices that appeal to a variety of modalities including reading, writing, building, designing, and thinking. We therefore shall strive to challenge these students by implementing a variety of learning modalities in the curriculum.  Caston School Corporation acknowledges that highly capable students require learning stimulation unique to them.  Our programming recognizes that high ability learners can be found in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic populations and these learners require differentiated curriculum and instruction to meet their needs.

Caston School Corporation identifies students as high ability through a multi-faceted identification process approved by the Indiana Department of Education.  For more information about our high ability program please see our Levels of Services Plan for High Achieving Students Handbook.
