Information for New & Prospective Scholars

​Welcome to Shamrock Gardens Elementary School (SGE)!


We are a K-5 partial magnet school, which means some of our scholars attend because SGE is their neighborhood school, while others attend because they applied through the magnet lottery program.

The Learning Immersion/Talent Development (LI/TD) Magnet Program at SGE:


The SGE magnet program is the Learning Immersion and Talent Development Program (LI/TD). This program provides scholars a learning environment focused on instructional strategies for advanced learners and a rigorous curriculum. The Learning Immersion (LI) program serves grades K-5. Scholars are taught using rigorous instructional strategies to foster critical and analytical thinking skills to help them reach their greatest academic potential. The Talent Development (TD) program serves grades 3-5. The TD program provides a full day, inclusive program for identified gifted scholars.

As a LI/TD school we implement the core district curriculum with advanced supplements to nurture potential and meet the advanced learning needs of students. Enrichment electives are provided to engage students in a variety of choice-based and high-interest learning experiences. We know that nurturing potential and meeting advanced learning needs are critical to individual success.
