The mission of Students in Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) is to provide gifted students the opportunity to become independent learners and decision makers who recognize their potential and responsibilities in a changing global society. The SAGE program has a proud heritage of serving gifted children in the Northland since 1975.
The SAGE program does not substitute or replace the excellent classroom instruction and enrichment already provided in the District. Instead, it is an integral part of the school curriculum. The district philosophy notes a commitment to developing the maximum potential of all students. To achieve this end result, all students should have a curriculum which includes basic skills, enrichment activities to nurture affective and cognitive skills, guided investigation, independent study, and accelerated learning, as appropriate.
The North Kansas City Schools SAGE program provides services to academically gifted K-12 students at Centers located throughout the District:
PRIMARY SAGE (K-2)
INTERMEDIATE SAGE (3-5)
MIDDLE SCHOOL SAGE (6-8)
HIGH SCHOOL SAGE (9-12)
