TAG Education at MNW Schools
The mission of the TAG program at Manson Northwest Webster Community Schools is to provide educational opportunities for Talented and Gifted students so they may reach their full potential in all educational settings and at all stages of learning.
In Elementary TAG, we look for students who demonstrate an ability to think differently. These are students who problem solve in unique and interesting ways. We want to give these gifted students a place where they can foster and grow their cognitive abilities through activities, games, puzzles, and individualized and personal projects.
Junior high TAG students meet together daily during PRIDE Time. Using the NAGC Standards, students partake in self-directed passion projects.
High school TAG students can meet with Mrs. Westerhoff during any free period to work on individual goals such as career and college planning, acceleration of coursework, or extracurricular academic programs like National History Day, Quiz Bowl, or Mock Trial. Students who are identified as gifted are eligible to take college courses as freshmen.
