Durham Public Schools recognizes that students learn in many different ways, and at a variety of levels. Advanced and intellectually gifted (AIG) students will find rigorous programs that challenge and develop their unique gifts and learning styles. The AIG programs in Durham Public Schools begin with assessments as early as second grade, and continue throughout elementary and middle school. Once a student enters high school, a wealth of advanced placement courses, and other special programs, are available.
