NHCS has a well established and respected AIG program. Our district recognizes the importance of gifted education and employs an AIG-Licensed educator as a supervisor to guide and monitor the AIG program and plan.  In addition NHCS employs a full time gifted education specialist at each school; with a half time position at each traditional high school. AIG  Specialists employed by NHCS must be AIG certified according to NCDPI requirements.
