The Challenge Center is a unique school within the Sioux Falls School District and Robert Frost has been its permanent home since the 2015-2016 school year.
The Challenge Center was developed to meet the needs of high ability students from across the district by providing an accelerated and enriched curriculum in an inclusive, full day program.
Our mission is to challenge the high ability students we serve to become well-rounded independent learners. We have established a flexible curriculum based on state standards, best research-based practice, gifted education standards of the National Association of Gifted Children, and student interests.
Interested parents may apply to have their child attend the Challenge Center if the student already qualifies for gifted services within his/her home school. To qualify, a minimum standard has been established which is based on standardized ability and standardized achievement test scores, with teacher recommendation to support the placement in this more rigorous program.
