About Us

The Paterson Academy for the Gifted and Talented at School #28 is designed for students throughout the city in grades 2-8 who qualify to attend through the gifted screening and identification process.


PAGT has a comprehensive articulated educational program, with the highest rigor and expectations, and a challenging curriculum designed to maximize personal growth and develop our students’ unique abilities.


The academy requires students to think critically, solve problems, assume responsibility for their learning, become leaders among their peers, and make connections between their learning and the outside world.
