Philosophy/Mission Statement
The mission of the Wayne County STRETCH program is to provide exceptionally gifted and talented students with the opportunity, atmosphere, and training conducive to stretching their imaginations, creativity, curiosity, and understanding about the world in which they live. The program will inspire provocative questioning, creative thinking, observation, and research as an outgrowth of the special interests and self-directed efforts of each child through a broad range of ideas and topics.

Through an enhanced environment, the special needs of the gifted learner will be addressed and a lifelong love of learning will be instilled. The students will be engaged in a stimulating curriculum that will foster metacognition in both the affective and cognitive domains, enabling them to excel in all phases of their personal and professional lives in an ever-changing world.
