Gifted Program (SAIL)

SAIL, Affton School District's gifted program, is offered in grades K-8.  Students in SAIL participate in interdisciplinary studies with their intellectual peers.  Students in grades K-5 attend SAIL once per week.  Students in middle school attend SAIL daily as part of their social studies program.

Students in high school have access to honors and AP classes.
