"The purpose of the Academically or Intellectually Gifted (AIG) Program is to provide an appropriately challenging educational program for students who perform, or show potential for performing, at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared to others of their age, experience or environment."
--WCPSS AIG Program Brochure
Carpenter’s Academically Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program serves identified Language Arts and Math students in the 4th and 5th grades through a variety of service delivery options including pull out classes and in-class collaboration with teachers.
Explorers Program for Third Grade
In addition the AIG resource teacher works collaboratively with third grade teachers to offer the Explorers/Enrichment Plus program to third grade students. The Explorers program provides a variety of in-class experiences designed to elicit high academic performance, as well as affective and cognitive growth. Students who demonstrate potential in these activities may receive extension activities in Language Arts and/or Math under the guidance of Mrs. Farnsworth, or Mrs. Baxter-- one of our AIG teachers.
