AIG Program Overview
Through our AIG Basics program, fourth- and fifth-grade students who are formally identified as academically gifted are grouped for core instruction. Advanced learners in early grades are provided with enrichment opportunities through the Explorers program at grade three and through push-in and pull-out instruction at grades K-2. In addition, we offer a broad array of AG elective courses for students at all grade levels, and we provide content differentiation in core instruction at all grade levels through technology applications, curriculum acceleration, and enrichment.
