Welcome to Haymarket START, Gifted for K-3! 


 Strategies for Teaching and Reaching for Talents

The START program offers gifted education services for identified students in kindergarten through third grade.  Students are identified based on specific academic aptitude in the areas of language and/or mathematics.  The START goals are to challenge students to develop their skills in thinking critically, creatively, and reflectively.  Students are offered a variety of educational opportunities that extend and enrich the curriculum and support the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs).
