MAGNET PATHWAYS AND THEMES
Gifted and Talented
The Gifted & Talented (GT) Program recognizes that all students possess gifts and talents. The program mission is to explore, develop, and nurture these qualities through challenging academic and artistic experiences encountered in a variety of electives. In addition to the four core subjects, students take three electives daily per quarter.During their three elective periods students explore new areas of interest or study a particular area in depth. This allows students time to hone their talents, or explore new areas of interest. Elective courses are offered on a yearlong, semester, and quarter basis; therefore, a student has the potential to take up to twelve different electives per year.
Students who are identified by WCPSS as Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) participate in the AIG Basics Program. AIG Basics places AIG students in core classes for language arts and/or mathematics and are grouped with other AIG identified students according to their individual qualifications. Moore Square teachers have received AIG training in order to implement differentiated instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies for AIG identified students.
MuseumsDynamic partnerships with local and state museums, government organizations, performing and cultural arts centers, as well as area businesses offers students opportunities to deepen their knowledge and shape their future world.
Elective OfferingsThough the elective lists below are separated by grade levels, you will find the elective course offerings on the 6th Elective List is almost identical to the 7th/8th Elective List. Please note, with a few exceptions, most elective classes may be composed of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
