Futher, 6th grade students will have the opportunity to demonstrate professional quality work in alignment with the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted and Talented Students through the completion of the Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP). TPSP embodies the Humble ISD Portrait of a Graduate by developing the inner communicator, innovator, and personally responsible citizen all our students can be.
