Welcome to BADGE, Bensalem Association Dedicated to Gifted Education.

We are a group of Parents, Teachers, and Educators working together as advocates for gifted students in Bensalem.  We are affiliated with PAGE, Pennsylvania Association for Gifted Education (an Affiliate Chapter of the National Association of Gifted).  

BADGE connects parents with each other, as well as with educators, administrators, and the School Board to:

  • Share our experiences and our knowledge

  • Discuss broad issues and help make the learning experience as rich and rewarding as possible

  • Provide information on legislation affecting gifted education so we can help to shape policy

  • Advocate for gifted students in Bensalem, both individually and as a group, as needed

We are committed to supporting our gifted students by assisting their parents/guardians in addressing their needs and partnering with our district to preserve the legacy of strong gifted education in our community.
