Welcome to the GT Corner!! Staff and faculty at Gorzycki Middle School continually work to support our students' involvement in various programs and organizations that offer to meet the needs of our diverse, talented, and advanced learners. Programs are offered in and outside of the regular school day to allow every student the opportunity to benefit from the amazing programs that we have in place! Our students are so incredibly talented - we are always working to offer opportunities that allow Gorzycki students to demonstrate their skills and talents and at the same time allow them to building on qualities as leaders of our community.  Please check this page regularly for updates on academic competitions, contests, and workshops that we have available for our students at Gorzycki Middle School!

Each year students can be nominated by parents and teachers for testing to determine eligibility into the gifted and talented program. The nomination window for the 2017-18 school year is November 1-15, 2018. Nomination forms from parents must be submitted to Whitney Black by November 15th via hard copy.  Click link for nomination form https://www.austinisd.org/sites/default/files/dept/adv-academics/GT_Parent_Nomination_Form_Sec_Bilingual_8262014.pdf
