AIM Services (campus-based)
AIM services provide a homogeneous grouping of elementary (K-6) students identified for gifted/talented services. AIM curriculum is designed to maximize students’ academic potential through in-depth and complex explorations of interdisciplinary studies not included in the general education classroom. Learning extends and enriches learning across all content areas. In AIM, students are challenged to develop and grow their skills through a variety of integrated, multidisciplinary learning activities and projects.
AIM services take place in a pull-out setting (i.e., the student leaves his/her general education classroom to go to the AIM classroom) where students are grouped with a gifted and talented specialist teacher. Kindergarten AIM services begin in March.
