Specialized Programs

The Sioux Falls School District will offer to students with exceptionally high academic and intellectual ability a challenging, accelerated, integrated, and enriched curriculum in the core subjects. By implementing this alternative school model for Elementary, Middle and High schools, families and students have a choice. Specialized schools are created around a specific subject area(s). All specialized schools continue to teach the core basic standards through lessons with a specific academic focus.

We offer a Fee-Based busing option to families who have their children enrolled in one of the Specialized Schools. Review the specific level “Information Sheets” for further details on registration, AM and PM stop options and pricing.
