    WCS AIG Program Vision

    The WCS AIG Program will advocate for, support, and challenge all gifted students to maximize their potential.

    WCS AIG Program Mission

    Through collaboration with the whole school community, the WCS AIG Program will provide rigorous, relevant, engaging, equitable practices designed to meet the varying academic, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of our gifted students. Gifted services in WCS will cultivate students’ skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and leadership, empowering them for future citizenship, leadership, and lifelong learning.
