AIG Program

The Mills Park Middle School AIG program serves the over 600 students already identified as Academically/Intellectually Gifted. In addition, each year we seek to identify even more exceptional students through nomination and testing.

At Mills Park, we recognize that giftedness is a unique trait. We seek ways to challenge and celebrate each student as an individual.

AIG Parent Presentation 2021

Responses to questions posted during the September 8 meeting:

  • My child was in AIG in elementary school. Are they automatically in AIG at MPMS?

    • Yes, all students identified in elementary school remain identified in middle school. No additional testing is needed.

  • When is the AIG class?

    • In middle school, there is no AIG class. Students are served through their ELA and/or Math class (depending on area of identification).

  • How do we sign up for community programs?

    • We post information about community programs on our 'enrichment' page. Follow links for registration.

  • Are AIG students assessed/evaluated?

    • Students who enter middle school with AIG identification will not take any additional identification tests. AIG students take classroom assessments alongside their regular education peers.

  • Will AIG students receive different assignments daily/weekly?

    • Assignments are differentiated for AIG students as needed. AIG teachers do not assign additional assignments. Any enrichment opportunities offered for students outside of the reading/math classes are optional.

  • With ELA being push in, does it mean that AIG students will be working in small groups on AIG content within the classroom ?

    • At times, yes. The push-in model is one option for delivering AIG services; however, small group AIG work is not a daily practice.
