Haywood County Schools’ vision is to discover, nurture, and develop the potential of every student to achieve success for today, preparation for tomorrow, and learning for a lifetime by providing a challenging education for all of our students.  Services for academically and/or intellectually gifted (AIG) students are an integral part of the vision to achieve an excellent level of education for all.  It is the responsibility of the entire staff to meet the needs of gifted students.  Haywood County Schools endorses the North Carolina definition of giftedness and develops programs and services that address these needs.
