Qualifying for Gifted Services
Gifted students test in the 95th percentile or higher on Cognitive Ability Tests compared to same age peers. These learners typically comprise approximately 5% of the school population.
Gifted Students' Needs
Gifted students have unique educational needs for challenge and pacing. "Students with gifts and talents perform - or have the capability to perform - at higher levels compared to others of the same age, experience, and environment in one or more domains. They require modification(s) to their educational experience(s) to learn and realize their potential," according to the National Association for Gifted Children.
