ABOUT OUR LOGO


The MAGE logo was updated in 2015 with input from the board members. The Mobius strip connotes complexity, continuity and infinity. Gifted and talented students are complex thinkers and their lives have infinite possibilities. Our goal is to provide continuity and support to all who work with these students. MAGE is embedded in Massachusetts. The bird, a sea gull, found along our coast, symbolizes our desire to give our advanced learners wings to soar.


We would like to acknowledge the excellent graphic design work of Nicholas Santangelo.
