BLC Facilities and the Optimum Learning Environment for Gifted Learners
When it comes to educating gifted students the learning environment plays a crucial role in both learning
and socialization. Highly and profoundly gifted students are often hyper sensitive and some may even struggle with sensory
processing disorder or ADHD.
Because of the sensitivity issues in the gifted population we have made it our
priority to locate learning spaces which have the features that work best for the gifted population we serve. We
have identified multiple locations around the San Francisco Bay Area that fit our criteria of providing both suitable
environments and cost-effective for our new program.
These places are our "Community Partners" and include libraries, museums, colleges, recreation centers,
cultural centers, churches, etc. Final decisions on precise classroom locations will be made in concert with the
Each BLC program will operate in three geographically
clustered locations local to enrolled families in our part-time program.
As an example:
Mondays will be at location A
Tuesdays will be at location B
Wednesdays at location C
The community of learners and staff remain the
same each day as does the structure of our gifted learning program. With this innovative approach we remain focused on the
unique needs of our learners and their families while we expand to serve more students in more communities around the San
Francisco Bay Area.
