Village East Gifted (VEG) offers an academically-rigorous CORE curriculum, covering all subjects, to gifted students ages 2-15. Its teaching methodology, The Phillips RBM Approach®, is trademarked and patented offering non-linear, highly-creative and intellectually-challenging lessons with a strong emphasis on the perfection of the written word.
Village East Gifted (VEG) believes that gifted toddlers are like "old souls". They understand concepts beyond their years.
Through VEG's unique dialectical practices, our students learn to verbally articulate their complex thoughts before they have even mastered the written word.
Instructional Writing, for ages 5-15, ensure that the students are correctly integrating what they learned in the CORE class into their writing samples. Participants, of all ages, are brought "back to basics" by rebuilding their skills … one-word-at-a-time.
Classes encourage the students to draw on the "natural connections between scientific and engineering methods to engage them in a more technical exploration of traditional science lessons.
