MGSD AIG Program

Empowering Students to Realize Their Maximum Potential

Services for Academically/Intellectually Gifted Students

Although students in Kindergarten through third grade are not formally identified as gifted, they may be included in instruction aimed at talent development such as Primary Education Thinking Skills (P.E.T.S.), Project-Based Learning, William and Mary English Language Arts Curriculum, and Project M2 Math, etc. In grades four through six, students are grouped in clusters of 6-8 students within a homeroom class and are provided differentiation in Core subjects through Project-Based Learning and other extension activities. They also participate in pull-out enrichment time with AIG peers for subject specific enhancement, bibliotherapy, and other activities.

During seventh and eighth grade, AIG students will be in honors courses in their identified subjects; other high ability/academically advanced students may opt to enroll in honors through open enrollment. In the high school years, open enrollment provides students numerous opportunities, such as advanced placement courses, honors, advanced, or virtually accessible high interest coursework, and a large variety of extracurricular options.
