What is REACH?
REACH is the name of the gifted and talented program in Hillsborough Township. It is an acronym for:

Reach, Explore Academic and Creative Heights

All first and second grade students meet with Mrs. Barajas for forty minutes each six-day cycle. Thinking skills such as analysis, problem solving, imagination, and fluency are addressed through lessons written by the REACH teaching staff. All second grade students are screened for participation in the pull-out third grade REACH program. The third and fourth grade REACH programs are for identified students. Students are pulled out from their third and fourth grade classes and are given small group instruction for 165 minutes each six-day cycle.
