IMPACT serves the needs of second through seventh graders who have been tested and identified as gifted. IMPACT is an acronym for Independence Missouri’s Program for the Academically and Creatively Talented. It is designed to introduce students to new areas of learning outside the scope of the regular classroom curriculum. The program also develops skills in complex and creative thinking to develop independent learners.
