TAG and PAT
Kindergarten students are identified for the Promising Aptitudes and Tendencies (P.A.T.) program in the fall semester. These students are taught by a GT trained teacher at his/her elementary campus.
Students identified in Grades 1 and 2 for the P.A.T. (Promising Aptitudes and Tendencies) program participate in a pull-out program one day a week. Those students travel to Frontier Elementary or Westside Elementary to receive services for gifted and talented education by a certified gifted and talented teacher. They also receive differentiated instruction by GT trained teachers at his/her home campus during the school day.
In Grade 3, 4 and 5, identified gifted and talented students attend the Angleton ISD T.A.G. Academy located at Frontier Elementary and Westside Elementary. Gifted and talented teachers provide challenging differentiated instruction designed to meet the needs of their students. Students receive accelerated curriculum instruction.
In addition, T.A.G. students are provided opportunities to extend their classroom learning through independent research and field trips that reinforce concepts taught in the classroom and provide relevance necessary for real life application.
