Mrs. Nuckols' AIG Page Welcome! I am Apex Elementary's AIG teacher. My teaching philosophy is for all children at Apex Elementary to learn and grow to their fullest potential. They should be challenged in way to understand more about themselves and others. I hope they always wonder and question the world so they can empower their minds with knowledge and explore all areas of interests. The Academically and Intellectually Gifted Program at Apex Elementary serves identified Language Arts and Math students in the fourth and fifth grades. Students are served through a variety of delivery options including classroom differentiation and enrichment resource units. The AIG program extends and enrichs Common Core Standards. Again, welcome to Apex!!
North Carolina State Definition of AIG Students, Article 9B (N.C.G.S. 115C-150.5) "Academically or intellectually gifted students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. Academically or intellectually gifted students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, or in both the intellectual areas and specific academic fields. Academically or intellectually gifted students require differentiated education services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor. "
