Gifted and Talented Education

What if I think my child might be gifted?

Anyone may refer a student to receive gifted and talented services, including parents and teachers. All students referred will be considered according to the district matrix. To refer a student for gifted and talented services, please complete a form at your child’s school between September 28 through October 9 for grades 1-12. Notification will occur in December. Kindergarten screening will occur in January with notification in March. Upon completion of the recommendation forms, please return them to your child’s classroom teacher, the counselor, or assistant principal.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's principal.

Advanced Placement/Dual Enrollment Programs

The Advanced Placement program enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Through 34 college-level courses, each culminating in a rigorous exam, AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both. Taking AP courses also demonstrates to college admission officers that students have sought out the most rigorous curriculum available to them.

Dual Enrollment courses offer students a wonderful opportunity to receive college credit while still being enrolled in high school.
