Testing and Placement for Gifted & Talented
Students can be referred for GTP placement testing at any point during the school year. Typically, students are tested in August, or after parent teacher conferences in November , and in March. Referrals can be made by a teacher or by a parent. The Parent Referral Form can be downloaded using the link below. When this form is completed and turned in, a Permission to Test Form will be sent home with your child.
Students qualify for the Extended Learning Program by testing into the top 3% of students nationwide in at least 2 of the 3 areas tested: Verbal, Quantitative, and Non-verbal. The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is the primary instrument used for testing.
