Glossary of Terms: Any SEPTA parent knows the terminology we hear can sometimes be confusing. We found a website with definitions to help you along.

Gifted and Talented: The Bethpage School District has an extensive program for the Gifted and Talented. In the elementary schools, students are chosen to enter the Argonauts Program based on a combination of assessment scores (state, NWEA, Lexile), the inView exam, and teacher recommendation.  The Argonauts Program is for fourth and fifth graders and is based on the Jason Project.  The program is run in all three schools by Mrs. Marcis, who also works with all fourth and fifth grade classes and runs the 21st Century Scholars Program.  JFK Middle School has accelerated classes in Math and Science for students who are recommended and Bethpage High School offers 18 Advanced Placement courses for students.  The 21st Century Scholars' Program at all five schools offers many forms of enrichment in a variety of fields.

New York State Education Department: The State Education Department (SED) has many resources for parents to check out.
