Who We Are

Gifted World is the trusted community for parents and educators of high ability learners.

Parenting an academically advanced student can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time!

Join a community of people learning to navigate these same waters.

Community Membership

  • Are you a parent or teacher looking to nurture your child's gifts?

  • Is your child not being challenged or engaged currently? 

  • Would you like more opportunities for them to interact with gifted peers, and be inspired to learn?

  • This may be the community for you.

Why Gifted World?

As a parent or educator of a child with advanced talents, these may be familiar challenges

01.

Feeling Overlooked

Advanced Learners have Unique Needs that aren't always appreciated

02.

Struggling with misunderstanding

Low awareness of giftedness leading to misunderstood behaviour

03.

Finding
Communities

Hard to find a supportive community that understands a gifted parent's journey

04.

Emotional &
Social issues

Lack of challenge, support and peer group leads to socio-emotional difficulty

05.

Concern about
wasted potential

Early Identification and support crucial to reach their full potential

When identified and supported, talented students show more motivation and develop confidence to work towards their goals. Gifted World aims to support parents, educators and schools in this journey.

Johns Hopkins University. ATS gold scholar and alumnus of Gifted Summer Program 2016

I'm currently getting my bachelors in Neuroscience, and my first ever exposure to the field was through the ASSET Summer Program. My experience at this Program was an incredible learning and growth opportunity for me, both personally and academically. It inspired my interest in neuroscience and medicine, and I am so thankful for the opportunity it gave me!

I like the diversity here- the way different students have been raised is so different...their culture and our culture and their lifestyles. Everything is so diverse here, there are people from all across the globe...so it's interesting to see what they are like

Inventure Academy, Bengaluru, India

ATS Gold Scholar, Alumnus of Gifted Summer Program, 2022

When I first got my ATS results, I vividly remember my grandmother being there and she was very supportive of it. Although I hadn't thought of the test results too much before that because I didn't want to be disappointed when I got them, I realised they were quite good because I got gold scholar and I was very proud of myself. Seeing the opportunities it brought were very excited as well.

About the Gifted Residential Program - Wonderful! There are minds from all over the world, in one room and we get to hear different opinions from each beautiful mind. It really changes your world or your perspective about a topic.

GEMS Modern Academy, Dubai  

ATS Gold Scholar,  Alumnus of Gifted Winter Program, 2022

 About the Gifted Residential Program - We learn about things we don't do at school. At school, we are given sums, we do it. Here we think about how this happened, when it happened and why it happened... It's not just by definition and memorizing, but more what we think and hearing what others have to say.
