WELCOME to Gifted Education at CGS!  

According to Article 9B of North Carolina General Statues:  “The General Assembly believes the public schools should challenge all students to aim for academic excellence and that academically or intellectually gifted students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, 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. (1996, 2nd Ex. Sess., c. 18, s. 18.24(f).)”

Pending approval from the state, we are implementing a new AIG plan to identify and to address the academic and social and emotional needs of our students under these guidelines.  We are excited to begin this new AIG plan, and we look forward to the incredible opportunities that await our school community.  Please check out the links for information and additional resources related to gifted education.
