Gifted/High Achievers Program

At Taper Avenue, students identified as gifted/high achievers receive additional classroom instruction and projects. Gifted students will meet together for ongoing projects and seminars conducted by our classroom teachers. Taper is also a "School for Advanced Studies (SAS)" and receives additional funds to promote differentiated instruction. Teachers receive specialized training through this same program.
