Testing for the gifted program occurs throughout the year. Students from kindergarten through 5th grade can also be referred for gifted testing by parents or teachers who see an indication that participation in gifted classes would be beneficial for that child.For students to be tested for gifted the students must first be referred by a parent or teacher. Then the students will be screened. This part consists of a team of teachers looking at the student's data in academic areas, creativity and motivation. Parents will then be notified if their child has qualified for testing and will need to sign and return an additional letter giving permission for testing. The students are tested in academics, mentalibilities, and creativity. A motivation checklist is also filled out by the student's teacher. Parents will be sent the testing results by mail after testing is completed.If you have any questions regarding the testing process please e-mail us. Thank-you!
