    Gifted and Talented Program                           


    The Raul Yzaguirre Schools for Success (RYSS) works to empower all students to be prepared to live and work successfully in the 21st century. Consistent with that vision, RYSS offers every student college and career readiness programs that meet their individual needs and intellectual ability. The gifted and talented programs at the Brownsville Raul Yzaguirre School for Success Preparatory are designed for students who perform at a high level of accomplishment and demonstrate creative and productive thinking and/or leadership ability. The gifted and talented programs provide these students with coursework that has the depth, complexity, and pacing that addresses their level of learning.     


    In the school’s gifted and talented programs, students are provided instruction that is geared toward self-directed learning with an emphasis on research, analysis, creativity, and communication. In addition, students may work in collaboration with businesses and industry representatives on projects and presentations.  Faculty members foster individual thinking as well as group collaboration in the development of class projects and research assignments. It is expected that projects completed in this program will be comparable to professionally produced projects and presentations.
