About us

The purpose of the Academically and Intellectually Gifted 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. Academically and intellectually gifted students receive differentiated education services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. The AIG Program provides ongoing Professional Development for K–8 teachers and staff, which incorporates appropriate instructional strategies to maximize student growth. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata and in all areas of human endeavor. The goal for gifted education is to provide opportunities for the fullest development of each learner’s potential.
