Talented and Gifted Program

Imagination is more important than knowledge.”   Albert Einstein

"Imaginization without knowledge is ignorance waiting to happen."  Zapperz

Students who have met the criteria on a matrix comprised of scores on standardized tests, creativity tests, logical thinking tests, GPA and a teacher checklist may elect to participate in the TAG program.  Classes meet five times out of a ten-day period.  The curriculum is highly challenging and thematically based, integrating strands of language arts, social studies, science and philosophy, cultivating creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, debate, decision-making, communication and higher-order thinking skills.  The class explores one thematic unit each trimester; themes vary with grade level.  In addition, each student works on an interest-based independent study culminating in a written paper, a visual project and a creative oral presentation.  Students consistently engage in reading, creative and expository writing, research, presentation and debate, and develop long-range planning and organizational skills to address the curricular needs.
