Belin-Blank Center Director Nicholas Colangelo recently visited the School for Exceptionally Gifted Children in Bratislava, Slovakia, which has a differentiated curriculum to meet the learning needs of the students. There is an emphasis on small group work and on the social-emotional and cognitive development of the students.
Dr. Colangelo said of the trip, “I found the teachers to be highly motivated and committed to high ability students. In my discussion with students, they liked the academic challenge of the school and the relationships with their teachers…I really enjoyed meeting the students and teachers. The building/hallways are colorful with works from the students.”
