SAGE Gifted Education Services

Mission:
To remove ceilings and raise expectations by providing opportunities for students with exceptional intellectual abilities.


Vision: Santa Fe Public Schools will identify all students with exceptional intellectual potential and individualize their education to optimize the development of talents.

Our Principles of Practice

      1. Giftedness is present in students from all racial, ethnic, linguistic, socioeconomic, and gender groups. Students may have both giftedness and disabilities.

      2. It is our goal to identify all gifted students, regardless of age or background.

      3. Identification for eligibility follows the SAT process.

      4. Giftedness is often characterized by uneven development as well as exceptional potential. Individual Education Programs will address both strengths and weaknesses.
