2020. Until now we have enjoyed the Gifted4All by Kleine Schule for preschoolers, schoolchildren and high school students and in 2020 we embark in a new adventure – we are launching the first school in Romania for children with high abilities – Romanian Gifted School. Under this name we will carry out all the activities of our kindergarten and school.

We are waiting for you to enjoy new programs addressed to children with high abilities (2-19 years old)!

Context

The specificity of children with high abilities – with synchrony and double exceptionality – does not consist of physical deficiency, or in a reduced capacity to manage emotions, of integration in the social environment, in vulnerability, but in the mechanisms of accessing information in an adequate, individualized way. They need an education in the spirit of creativity as a stimulus of socio-emotional relations, in accessing their resources and informational circuit, in outlining personal and social values validated by the high quality work environment, open to entrepreneurship and volunteering, in close connection with non-formal pedagogies and working methods that stimulate thinking, creativity, analysis from as many perspectives as possible and involvement in the community.

World research indicates that early education is of fundamental importance in the formation of intelligence, creativity, skills, and abilities; they show that the quality of education, at an early age, depends on the evolution of man as a whole: at 3 years old each child is gifted, all the buds of developing his potential are activities: he is creative, he is attentive, eager to learn, he has a sense of justice, he has humor, he is able to concentrate, he is capable of sustained effort, and most importantly, he is motivated. The same research shows that at 10 years old, intelligence and creativity are already formed in a proportion of 95-98%, and after this age, children/adolescents enter the stages of emancipation, when they still need guidance for the formation of real values.

Romanian Gifted School emphasizes the so-called window of opportunity in education: the period of formation of cognitive, social, emotional and aesthetic skills which is very short and is found at the earliest age of the child (up to 12 years).

Process of selection

Steps for selection

  2. Psychological testing from which information on the coefficient of cognitive, emotional, social, and behavioral intelligence emerges – more information here.
  3. Elaboration of a report by our specialists from the sum of the samples resulting from the testing
  4. An individual meeting with the parents to discuss the intervention plan
  5. The program proposal-the detailed proposal is made available to those who qualify to participate in the Romanian Gifted School

Stages of enrollment

  1. Request form of enrollment
  2. Transfer request (if applicable)
  3. Certification of English language level (8+) – documents attesting the acquired level
  4. Essay in Romanian and English language

Benefits

  • Summer camps both in the country (children și adolescents), and abroad. Annually, with the partial or total support of our sponsors, we can provide 1-2 participation scholarships. Scholarships are made available based on selection criteria.
  • Participation in national and international festivals.
  • Internship programs (14+).
  • The possibility to get involved as volunteers in certain activities within the Romanian Gifted School (receive the necessary volunteer diploma for the application file for university).

Summative evaluations

Summative assessments are standardized tests and aim to evaluate competencies acquired during a learning period. Romanian Gifted School goes on international standardized tests. At Romanian Gifted School we consider that it is much more important to evaluate the children’s competencies and abilities, not the knowledge.

Romanian Gifted School – Educational Model

CURRICULUM

The novelty is given by the creation of the curriculum being adapted to the needs of children with high abilities, taking into account:

  • the stages of their psychological development
  • new studies and research in the field of neuroscience
  • psychopedagogy of children with high abilities

The educational program created by our team of psychologists, trainers, evaluators of educational programs is divided into 4 areas:

  1.  Gifted Brain Awareness  – creat pentru creșterea capacităților de învățare prin tehnici specifice (învațare rapidă, metoda Feurstein, Soroban, neuroștiințe pentru copii).
  2.  Gifted Social Skills  – programe de dezvoltare socială (internship (14+), implicare socială, competiții care pun acentual și pe abilitățile sociale, de lucru în echipă, programe pentru familiile copiilor înscriși la Romanian Gifted School).
  3.  Gifted Self Development – programe ce țin de dezvoltarea personală, educația caracterului (dezvoltare emoțională, coaching și mentoring, comunicare asertivă). Acestea cursuri transversale sunt adresate tuturor copiilor înscriși în cadrul Romanian Gifted School.
  4.  Gifted Subjects–programe de învățare transdisciplinară:
    • Gifted Social Sciences – scriere creativā, debate, public speaking, eticā, diplomaţie, responsabilitate financiarā, implicare civicā, antreprenoriat)
    • Gifted Applied Science (creativities) – fotografie, jurnalism, media, marketing pentru copii, film
    • Gifted Integrated Sciences (logicā-matematicā) – roboticā, mecatronicā, inginerie, arhitecturā, programare
    • Gifted Arts – gravurā, string art, incursiune în lumea artelor, design vestimentar, culorile și decorul, compoziţii vizuale, facilitare graficā

CU CINE ÎNVEȚI

Accentul, în programele dezvoltate de echipa noastrā, cade pe copil, însā în paralel e nevoie și de educaţia adulţilor – a cadrelor didactice și a pārinţilor. De aceea, orice nou trainer are nevoie în primul rând de formare în psihopedagogia copiilor „gifted”.
