FlexSchool is a day school for gifted and twice exceptional (2e) middle and high school students. With two campuses, one in New Jersey and another in New Haven, Connecticut, FlexSchool provides a high-quality, flexible, individualized educational experience for divergent thinkers in middle school, high school and post-graduate year. The school provides one-on-one courses for those students who want to be a part of a school, yet need individual attention in some or all of their courses. The faculty focuses on critical thinking in all areas of learning; a “toolbox” concept emphasizing how to learn rather than an “encyclopedia” concept emphasizing specific material (though all core bases are covered in depth). Block scheduling promotes in-depth discussions and extensive experiments. For students in one-on-one courses, the depth and flexibility of the teaching staff enables students to customize their schedules.
The Fred J. Carnage Middle School AG Basics program is based on research showing that academically gifted students have exceptional potential which must recognized, nurtured, challenged, and expanded.
The philosophy of the AG Basics program is implemented through curriculum and instructional strategies that provide differentiated services to match students' gifted characteristics.
