Angevine Middle School is committed to providing an outstanding experience for all of our talented and gifted students. TAG students receive advanced programming in a variety of ways. First and foremost, students receive advanced instruction, either through differentiation in the classroom, or through accelerated classes. There are numerous math classes available to match students with a course that best meets their ability level, from compressed classes that cover two years of material in one year, to advanced algebra and geometry. Advanced Language Arts classes are available for students who excel in reading or writing. There are a variety of electives with advanced options in Spanish and the fine arts.
Angevine also has a variety of ways to provide social emotional support for TAG students and their families. Counselors, school psychologists, and interventionists are available for students and their parents to discuss and social or emotional concerns. Some services include:
Small groups to work on stress management and friendship development
TAG lunches to address affective needs, goals, and provide challenges
The morning TAG class is an option for students who wish to participate in an independent study of their choosing to help meet their goals. Classes will be run weekly, on a “drop-in” basis. Students can study an area of personal interest, work on group projects, or participate in one of the many scheduled activities.
Additional enrichment activities and clubs allow TAG students to develop their interests in math, science, language, leadership, the arts, coding, engineering, and more. These activities are open to all Angevine students and can include:
AMS Clubs (Please see the clubs tab for more information):
