POLSON — Learning a new language can be a difficult task for high school students, even with the guidance of a teacher. For Tamara Fisher’s middle school advanced studies class, it can be tricky, too. But that’s because some of those students are learning Italian, Swedish and Arabic... on their own.
For 30 years, Polson middle and high schools have had the Gifted and Talented Program challenging the bright minds of tomorrow, today. The program offers students the opportunity to complete a project of their choosing, based on several factors, including their personal interest and motivation. Students this semester are achieving a wide range of objectives, from designing a ventriloquism dummy, to learning ventriloquism to writing and publishing their own books.
