Innovative Programs for Exceptional Students


The goal of the OPPTAG program is to match students with appropriate learning experiences and emphasize an approach to teaching that underscores strengths and encourages high achievement. Additionally, all programs offer extracurricular enrichment experiences that broaden students' knowledge of the world.

Our staff, drawn from Iowa State University and some of Iowa's top high schools, excels in offering unique, flexible and challenging academic experiences by incorporating hands-on experimentation as well as individual and collaborative projects. They are all trained to elicit creativity and critical thinking while providing experiences that typically are not encountered in traditional classrooms.
