The purpose of this study is to explore the current status of informatics gifted education in Korea and to suggest the implications. Informatics gifted education is growing trend. Students are seleted through 2, 3-steps process and each class consists of 20 students. The curriculum focused on the programming language and application programs and various other courses run by each institution. The increase in quality of the education for the gifted is not noticeable in Korean society. This is mainly because of the lack of systematic standardized education for the gifted. According to these result, it is suggested the implications such as increasing selection of students, development of the standardized curriculum, improvement of expertise and qualifications of teachers, changes in perception of the students, parents and the educators.
