Atheneum Gifted Magnet Program is proud to be a National Blue Ribbon High Performing School. The U.S. Department of Education awarded the school the designation in 2011.

The Atheneum program started in Inver Grove Heights in 2002. It serves students in grades 2-5. Students in Atheneum have to meet eligibility criteria determined by a district identification committee. Students invited to participate have been tested and found to be in the superior range of cognitive ability.

The program's mission is to provide a self-contained classroom option for students to enhance the daily academic rigor that will motivate and challenge this group of learners.
