Abstract. Support and development of gifted children today is not just one of the directions of work of educational institutions but also public policy in the field of education. Support of talented children is becoming the main direction of development of education which has raised the issue of how the development of gifted children should become the "system mechanism" and "social elevator". The subject of the article is a description of the experience of the program of gifted children's development. The goal of the article is to present a model and a system of work with gifted and highly intelligent students in secondary schools. The novelty of the material presented is caused by the fact that the author gives a description of the model and system of gifted children's development and abilities of students compatible with the national curriculum. To achieve the goal of the work the author has applied traditional teaching methods. To summarize approaches to understanding giftedness the author has also applied the methods of analysis and synthesis of giftedness theories. To implement the empirical part the author has applied summative, formative and control experiments. The process of the program implementation consists of three stages, and there are certain goal and activities at each stage. The author of the article describes the results of the study. The author demonstrates a positive change in 5-year dynamics of the targets of the program. Their efficiency is proven by criteria and indicators of growth: the share of children included in the system of development of giftedness, the number of contestants and winners of various competitions, the number of teachers with higher education and the percentage of parents satisfied with the quality of educational services. The model clearly reflects the characteristics of the development of talent at all stages of school education: primary school through the formation of the prerequisites (cognitive demand, universal learning activities and creativity), in high school through three core areas (humanities, language, information and communication), and in high school through individual profiles of development in specific types of giftedness. In the course of work the author has defined events and activities for the extension of the program for the next 5-year period. The results can be interesting in scientific terms for applying effective technologies and tools for the development of gifted children. They can also be applied in terms of application in terms of psycho-pedagogical training of teachers and education of parents.
