Talented & Gifted
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 to provide instruction for identified TAG students and, when scheduling permits, enrichment for a number of other students.
The TAG curriculum focuses on developing and honing students’ thinking, analyzing, and communicating skills. The curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards as adopted by Connecticut as well as the National Association for Gifted Children Standards. The curriculum addresses the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEM).
