STRETCH Gifted Program

Welcome to Mehlville Gifted Education

The Mehlville School District Gifted Education program provides unique learning experiences for intellectually advanced students in grades K-8. This advanced capacity requires modification to the regular curriculum to ensure students are challenged. These students also benefit from opportunities to regularly interact with their intellectual peers in a setting that nurtures their academic, intellectual and social/emotional development. 

STRETCH (Supplementary Teaching Resources for Educationally Talented Children) is the gifted education program for Mehlville Schools. Identified students in grades 1-5 attend classes once a week at the STRETCH Center, located at Washington Middle School. Students in grades 6-8 participate in program activities as part of their daily school schedule.
