AIM Gifted Education Program

Welcome to the AIM Program at Parkway High School!  

High school AIM gifted education students in Bossier Parish have the opportunity to take the high school AIM Gifted Elective and community college courses at BPCC and/or to conduct independent research under the direction of their AIM teacher in order to enrich their education.

Students in the AIM Gifted Elective work with professional mentors online through the International Telementor Program to increase understanding of college and career opportunities, learn collaborative research techniques, and make pre-professional contacts. Students work on logic and critical thinking skills and ACT/SAT test preparation while participating in class activities designed to develop vocabulary, reading, writing, research, communication, problem-solving, and presentations skills. 

AIM students who maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA in high school coursework are eligible to take a community college class at Bossier Parish Community College each semester throughout high school.

AIM students who do not choose to take the elective or a BPCC class will complete an approved independent project under the direction of their AIM teacher at least one time during the instructional year.

Please contact me at any time if you have questions about the AIM Gifted Education Program at Parkway High School.

Additionally, my AIM students and I have collaborated on independent research projects with mentors through the International Telementor Program since 2005. 

     I fervently believe in the importance of helping students prepare for success in the 21st Century and strive to help students develop skills in creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, innovation, research, and collaboration.
