U-46 provides a variety of gifted programs to ensure that every high-achieving student has an opportunity to excel.
Access to Inquiry and Meaning (AIM) is a talent development program, designed to provide enrichment opportunities for the development of potential in students from underrepresented populations in 2nd and 3rd grade. IGNITE and Dual Language IGNITE (Inquiry and Gifted Network for Ingenuity Talent and Exploration) are school-within-a-school programs for 4th through 6th grade students who demonstrate achievement or specific academic aptitude in the areas of Mathematics and English Language Arts and perform beyond the norm for their age group. Gifted services continue for 7th & 8th graders through the Middle School Gifted program. High School Academies are designed to take high school students to new levels of creative, interdisciplinary learning and give them a head start on their college education and career path. Advanced Placement course offerings are also available to high school students.

We now expect those notifications will be mailed during the week of December 3. All students who tested will receive a letter mailed to their homes. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
