What is REACH?

       REACH is the name of the gifted and talented program in Hillsborough Township.

It is an acronym for
 Reach, Explore Academic and Creative Heights.


Ms. Elliott is Sunnymead School’s REACH teacher. In second grade, all students are screened for possible participation in the “pull-out” REACH program which begins in grade 3. The third and fourth grade REACH classes are for identified students. Students leave their third and fourth grade classrooms for 160 minutes each six-day cycle for small group REACH instruction. REACH lessons in these grades are project-based and address specific critical and creative thinking skills including: fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration, imagination, analysis, synthesis, evaluation, problem solving, decision making, self-awareness, communication, research techniques and self-directed learning.
