While our standards and progress report have been updated, our mission remains the same. Our mission continues to be to prepare gifted students for an ever-changing global marketplace where they must be self-reflective, goal-oriented, problem-seekers and solvers. Currently Norton Park provides a direct service model for students who are qualified. The ALP (Advanced learning Program) is process driven. Our ultimate goal is for students to meet the standards. The content and activities help us reach these goals.
