Students in Academically Gifted Education (SAGE)

The SAGE Program allows gifted students from across the North Kansas City School District to become independent learners and decision makers who recognize their potential and responsibilities in a changing global society.  SAGE has a proud heritage of serving gifted children in the Northland since 1974.

The SAGE Center serves over 1,100 academically gifted Kindergarten through 8th grade students located at the Northland Innovation Campus.  It is an integral part of the school curriculum that does not substitute or replace classroom instruction and enrichment.  

Students work in a one-to-world computing environment where students have access to various technological resources.  The technology used is embedded throughout the instructional practices, with students utilizing multiple digital tools to share, create, and present.

In a typical day at the SAGE Center, choices are abundant for students of all ages.  Students have opportunities to reach their highest levels of learning through units of study that involve real-world problem solving, critical thinking skills, affective learning independent study, collaborative opportunities, local compeitions, and foreign language. 

Students in the SAGE program at the high school level benefit from personalized services allowing each to maximize his or her capabilities.  A Gifted Resource Specialist (GRS) who serves as an adviser to the gifted students in grades 9-12 is located at each high school.
