Talent Development, Academic Challenge & Gifted Support (TAG)

Providing rigorous and enriching opportunities

Your child will be challenged and engaged through the differentiated learning experiences offered through Talent Development, Academic Challenge and Gifted Support (TAG) programming. Students deserve and need challenging learning opportunities that help them discover their unique interests and strengths. Our programming is designed to meet the needs of all students, including those who have demonstrated high performance or show the potential for high performance relative to others of their age, experience or environment.
