Quest Gifted Program

The QUEST Gifted Program is provided in grades 2-6.  The goal of the program is to provide the students with a rich and rigorous gifted curriculum.  Our goal is to satisfy the gifted students' intellectual curiosity.  The students are identified for the program by a group screening that is done in First Grade.  Once a student scores a certain percentage then other screening tests are performed.  Students may also be referred for testing at any time by a teacher, parent, grandparent, or administrator. 

All gifted teachers in the Sunflower County Consolidated School District hold a teaching certification for gifted education. 

  • Ginger Berry serves the gifted students at Drew Hunter Middle, Ruleville Middle, Moorhead Central, and Carver Elementary.
  • Elizabeth Jefcoat serves the gifted students at Lockard Elementary, Moorhead Central, and Carver Elementary.
  • Alana Moore serves the gifted students at AW James Elementary, and Ruleville Central Elementary.

The gifted classes participate in meaningful research, development of thinking skills, creativity, group dynamics, communication, career discovery, and self directed learning.  The students meet with their gifted teachers for four hours per week.


Mr. Dylan Jones serves as the district gifted coordinator. Mrs. Mary Berry serves as the gifted contact person. If there are any questions about the gifted education program, please call (662) 884-1200 X142 or email and
