Intellectually gifted children and youth are th
ose who perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Children and youth possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor. Gifted students may be found within any race, ethnicity, gender, economic class, or nationality. In addition, some students with disabilities may be gifted. Montgomery public School System shall prohibit discrimination against any student on the above basis with respect to his/her participation in the gifted program.

QUEST (Questioning, Understanding, Enriching, Seeking, and Thinking) is the gifted program for elementary students in grades 3 and above in the traditional elementary school. The QUEST Program strives to provide opportunities and enriched experiences beyond traditional classroom academics. In the QUEST Program, students are provided opportunities for learning the skills underlying the thinking process, for experiencing an understanding for the world's people and their relationships to each other, for exploring personal futures, and for the independent quest of knowledge in areas of interest. The differentiated curriculum is designed to mesh with and extend the regular school curriculum. QUEST emphasizes student-initiated learning and offers academic challenges through enriched content, long-term projects, and interaction with intellectual peers.  A few topics of study are:  Engineering & Design, The Brain, Stalking the Wild Polyhedron,  The Mystery of Forensic Science, Predator or Prey: Animal Adaptations.
