Horizon is a special class for gifted and high achieving students. Georgia defines a gifted student: a student who demonstrates a high degree of intellectual and/or creative abilities, exhibits an exceptionally high degree of motivation, and/or excels in specific instruction and/or special ancillary services to achieve at levels commensurate with his or her abilities.  At Battlefield Elementary we offer gifted S.T.E.a.M. classes in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Gifted testing is conducted in the spring. The screening process can be initiated through a parent or teacher testing request.
