National Association of Gifted Children’s (NAGC) Definition of Giftedness “Gifted individuals are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude (defined as an exceptional ability to reason and learn) or competence (documented performance or achievement in top 10% or rarer) in one or more domains. Domains include any structured area of activity within its own symbol (e.g. mathematics, music, language) and/or set of sensorimotor skills (e.g. painting, dance, sports).”
To inspire and provide opportunities for innovative and engaging learning. We fully support the state definition of giftedness: "Academically or intellectually gifted (AIG) students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experiences or environment. Academically or intellectually gifted students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, or in both intellectual areas and specific academic fields. Academically or intellectually gifted students require differentiated educational services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor."As a result we have designed a comprehensive AIG plan implement best practices to meet the needs of our students.
