ALPS - Advanced Learning Placement for Students
ALPS is an acronym for the Advanced Learning Placement for Students, a gifted and talented magnet program that serves high-ability students in grades 1-9. The program is designed for students who demonstrate high performance, or capacity for high performance, beyond grade/age expectations and thus require specialized learning experiences beyond the regular curriculum. Students attend school full-time in one of six ALPS magnet schools (3 elementary schools and 3 middle schools). Please visit the links below for more information about the ALPS magnet program.
