Gifted Education

Welcome to the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center Gifted Services page. A gifted child's intellectual future can be shaped by both your awareness of the· needs of gifted students, as well as, the provision of appropriate services to best meet their needs. According to the Ohio Content Standards, "...students who can exceed the grade-level indicators and benchmarks set forth in the standards must be afforded the opportunity {to advance} and be encouraged to do so."  The MRESC offers professional consulting and coordinator services for school districts around the identification of gifted and talented students and supporting the teachers who serve them.


The mission of Gifted Services is to provide opportunities for students identified as gifted to excel through the educational and extension realms.



Through programming, extension opportunities, parent-teacher-student support and summer programming, it is the goal of our organization to provide every such opportunity for our students to succeed.
