Courses taken at two separate institutions like a high school and a community college at the same time is referred to as dual enrollment. One course that meets the requirements of two academic institutions is referred to as dual credit.
Online college courses may be offered at high schools, or students may attend a local college or community college in person. Students can accrue college credits while in high school, resulting in considerable cost savings. Dual credit cost savings can be calculated by multiplying the number of dual credits earned by the tuition cost at a college, adding in books and fees, and even student housing.
San Antonio public elementary schools offer their advanced learning students with the opportunity to enroll in Gifted & Talented programs. TEA guidelines state that school districts must provide proper services to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who have been assessed and identified as GT. Children identified as gifted students usually perform at high levels in a creative or intellectual area when compared to other students of the same age, environment, or experience. GT students tend to possess exceptional leadership capabilities, and they display a love of learning in one or multiple subjects. Gifted and talented children don’t automatically find themselves drawn to Advanced Placement programs. Some GT students in middle and high school might not flourish in environments with more difficult and time-consuming work. Instead, they may prefer time to pursue their talents while thinking and exploring.
