Highly Gifted Magnet

The HGM program was established in 1989 for students who have a measured IQ of 145+ and is designed to provide an academically challenging, college preparatory program. The approximately 300 students in grades 9-12 study a stringent, rigorous curriculum commensurate with the most demanding of public or private schools in the country. The HGM student is a well-rounded individual whose emotional, intellectual and physical success is fostered by involvement in the regular high school and community. These students have gained immeasurably by interacting in a culturally diverse, urban high school. The program seeks to prepare students to thrive in the most demanding of university environments. Students display a variety of interests in their extracurricular activities and academic directions.
