The TAG Program in New Haven is a district-wide program for academically gifted students. Currently one TAG teacher is assigned to each elementary and middle school one day per week to provide instruction for identified TAG students and enrichment for a number of other students.
The team of TAG teachers collaboratively plans a curriculum focusing on developing and honing students’ thinking, analyzing, and communicating skills. The TAG curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards as adopted by Connecticut as well as the standards of the National Association of Gifted Children. The curriculum includes the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEM).
