“When you know how to think, it empowers you far beyond those who ONLY know what to think.” – Neil de Grasse Tyson
Following an unprecedented year for public education, the Irvington Board of Education’s Intellectually Gifted Program looks forward to offering its full resource program to complement and supplement the learning experience for identified students in grades 1-8. This program serves those exceptional children in our school system who possess such superior cognitive abilities that require special education to meet their unique needs.
Currently, the Intellectually Gifted Program is located in the following four schools:
- Madison Avenue Elementary School – serves students in grades 1-5
- University Elementary School – serves students in grades 1-5
- Union Avenue Middle School – serves students in grades 6-8
- University Middle School – serves students in grades 6-8
Upon qualifying and accepting admission into the Intellectually Gifted Program, the students are assigned to one of the above schools. The assigned school is responsible for the educational needs of those students.
