Leading Accelerated Students
Academic Gifted and Talented PRogram
A.T.L.A.S. is a program provided by Spartanburg Three to
meet the needs of gift and talented students in grades 3-12. Students who meet the eligibility criteria in
at least two out of the three dimensions are eligible for gifted and
talented service in the District ATLAS program.
All students in grade two will be screened and
tested. Nominations are not necessary
for this grade level.
All students in grade two and nominated students in grades
three through nine will be screened with both aptitude and achievement tests.
Some students will meet the eligibility criteria without
further assessment; others, whose screening suggests that they are potential
qualifiers, will require additional testing.
Students who are newly identified this school year will
start services next fall. For example,
students identified in grade 2 this year start services in grade 3.
