What is AIG?

The term “AIG” stands for Academically or Intellectually Gifted. In Orange County Schools, we believe that giftedness exists within all ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups. Students demonstrate gifted behaviors in many ways, and gifted learners have unique learning needs. Academically or intellectually gifted students perform, or show the potential to perform, at substantially high levels of accomplishment.
