Program Service Options for Grades K-3




Identification

During the third grade year, all students will take the Cognitive Abilities Test. At the end of this year, all students will take the End-of-Grade Tests in Reading and Math. Individual aptitude and achievement tests may be administered as necessary. Student interest and motivation will also be criteria for identification.

Services

Some students in this grade span are served in a pull-out enrichment program which emphasizes reading and math. They meet with the AIG Coordinator three days per week for forty-five minutes per day. During this time, they extend their knowledge of classroom work through integrated tasks, activities and projects which encourage development of higher level skills and processes.

Special Programs

The elementary years are a critical time for developing and deepening academic and artistic interests and talents. The K-6 program provides all students with pull-out classes in art and music. Academic clubs, competitions, and special activities such as Junior Great Books, Math Counts, and Odyssey of the Mind also provide outlets for student expression.
