The Association for the Advancement of International Education, in collaboration with the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University, hosted a four-day institute at the Mt. Washington campus of Johns Hopkins. Fourteen participants from eleven schools drafted plans to strengthen offerings for highly able students. The plans, developed in the context of school mission statements, addressed issues of student identification, curriculum adaptation, out-of-school resources, program design and delivery, effectiveness metrics and buy-in strategies. Countries represented were Japan, Taiwan, Estonia, Mexico, Bangladesh, Bucharest, Singapore, Greece, Norway and Saudi Arabia.
