Based on the philosophy of nurturing the unique learning characteristics, interests, and capabilities of gifted students, the goals of the gifted services in Fulton County Schools are to develop: 

  • Advanced research methods and independent study skills original to the student
  • Creative thinking and creative problem-solving skills in order to be a generator of ideas and products
  • Higher order and critical thinking skills
  • Development of products and ideas that will be shared with real audiences.

Cognitive skills emphasized at each level include knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation, fluency, flexibility, originality, elaborative thinking, complexity, curiosity, risk-taking, and imagination. TAG teachers are experienced professionals who have received an endorsement in Gifted Education from the Georgia Department of Education.

Students have a variety of options for receiving gifted services. TAG students attend advisement conferences with a TAG teacher several times a year. Freshmen gifted students are served through TAG collaborations with their subject area teachers. Students who do not take AP or IB classes must select another TAG option.


Work-Based Learning Programs

The Work-Based Learning Program allows qualified seniors to receive course credit for a supervised experience in business. Paid internship opportunities are available through Business Internships (BI), Career-Technology Intervention (CTI) and Youth Apprenticeship (YAP). These programs combine classroom instruction, on-the-job work experience, and leadership training through the Future Business Leaders of America. Participants are given release time from school to complete their work experience. Students are supervised at the work site by their employers and the work program coordinator. Students must provide their own transportation to the internship site.
