Students who are identified as gifted and talented may need specialized programming and intervention. The Saskatoon Public Schools Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) program provides differentiated learning experiences beyond those normally provided in the regular program to satisfy the level of educational potential indicated. The program is guided by current research on the nature of giftedness and the learning needs of gifted students.
Dr. John G. Egnatoff School is one of three elementary schools that is home to the SAGE program. This program is offered to students in grades 5-8 who are identified through a referral process as needing this type of learning enrichment support. Students are identified for the program in the Grade 4 year through a combination of teacher observation, assessment data, characteristics of giftedness, and enrichment activity work samples.
